Dust in the Wind...

...and your face, your car, house, streets, etc etc...


Since my last two posts are now weather related, you can see how exciting our summer is turning out to be so far.  We're in adoption paperwork limbo, although we're getting good at writing out gigantic checks again.  Here is video of last night's Duststorm (or haboob, if you want to be specific) that hit around 7 pm and is a normal part of our Arizona monsoon season.  This morning everything is covered in dirt, including the entire inside of the parking garage here at work.  (I mean at work, since of course I'm not typing this on company time.  Perish the thought!)  At 10,000 feet high with winds around 50 miles an hour, this was one of the bigger ones.  At least there was no rain...then the dirt is even harder to wash off.

Wow, that's crazy. I guess covering things in dirt makes up for the fact that you don't have salt and dirt on your cars like we do in the winter...and snow. Although snow kind of cleans things, I guess. That is just insane--never experienced one myself.

"It rains dirt" pretty much sums up the state of Arizona.

As a kid in El Paso walking home from school, the blowing sand pretty much took off any exposed skin and eye ball. Don't miss it a bit!
