    Well, I was watching one of the Planet Earth DVDs and I heard a strong wind blowing outside. I looked and I couldn't see the house across the street! The dust was so thick!!

    We have those strong ones once in a while, most of the time it's like a light dusting. This one was thick!

    What does that kind of thing do to the paint on your car?

    That sand storm happened a while ago, two days? Didn't it?
    We saw pics of it in our TV news!
    I was thinking of all our Arizona-based members, wondering who of them experienced it directly? You did. It looked FIERCE!!!

    Not much, since they don't last long. My cars are garaged anyway.

    A strong rain storm followed and cleared all that dust away.

    Oh, that wa a baby storm compared to this one. Yeah, we had a pre-rain dust storm a few days ago.

    You should see the wall of dust approaching, pretty impressive. Nothing like the ones in Sahara but nevertheless awesome.
