DUST STORM – WEEKLY WEATHER

This Week’s Challenges: July 16 – 22 (OWPC & WW)

***

This week’s weather is brought to you by a dust storm! We have them all the time here, and I always try to take a photo of the dirt blowing around. The photos are okay, but for actually seeing them and being in them, they are much worse. If you’re outside, the little sand particles sting when they hit you, your eyes are gritty and red, and it even gets in your mouth. Not to mention the strong wind almost blowing you down. In the house, you can smell the dirt in the air, and it sifts in through every little crack around the windows and doors. These photos were just a week or so ago, then we had a haboob roll in, which caused them to cancel the fireworks display for the 4th of July. Then it came a downpour of rain. Yes, we get mud balls! Fun – fun! 🙂

Weekly Weather: Dust Storm

Living in west TX, we get lots of dust storms. They can happen any time, but mostly from January through March. These photos were taken out my back door during a couple. The first one was very strange. They said it was a haboob. It got really dark, and the sky was filled with red dirt for awhile. The other two was another sand/dust storm, but wasn’t that eerie red color. It gets so bad here at times, you can’t see good enough to drive down the highway, and there are accidents every time.

I’ve seen big walls of dirt rolling in, and that’s what they call them…walls of dirt. They can be seen for miles before they get to you, so you do have a little time to prepare, like closing windows, and tying things down outside so they don’t blow away.

The sand gets in the house through every little crack, even piling up in little drifts by the door and windows. Our eyes are gritty and it even gets in your mouth at times. The fact that there is so much dust in the air does make for some spectacular sunsets, and sunrises, too.
