    I have been in many of these when living in NE... I don't miss them at all LOL

    Yes, they do look just like that... and come fast. Dust gets driven in everywhere.. inside the house was absolutely hazy with dust. It took weeks to get rid of it all :(

    Im glad you posted. I was going to earlier and got side tracked. I have lived here in Arizona my whole life and have seen many dust storms, this was unbelievable to say the least. The massive cloud of dust (they are saying now) spanned 50 to 70 miles wide and 5000 feet high. It shut down the airport and made such a mess out of everything. Dirt is everywhere.

    Here is another link that shows its enormous size. Honest to Pete...watch till the end, it literally went black in seconds.

    The country is having the weirdest weather I have ever seen. It is really kind of scarey. Torandoes, flooding high winds and now dust storms.

    This is horrible!! I was in a dust storm when I was a child in Avenal, Ca. We didn't leave the house for a couple of days and didn't open any windows or doors. I will never forget that experience.

    The layer of dirt on my car this morning was unbelievable. I had to clean all my windows before I could even leave for work.

    I was amazed at the size of the cloud on the weather report. I once lived on a dirt road--started thinking of the dust seeping through windows and doors--what a mess!

    I never saw anything like that before. I told my husband that it looks like something out of the Mummy movies.

    In the area I used to live in, the storms were always followed by heavy rain, so that it was raining mud.I don't miss it.
