Dust storm

Bad dust storm today. They left us an hour early at the office. Yippeee!
I clicked this pic from my 1st floor balcony at 2:45 p.m. Will try and click the same view another day, same time when it's clearer.

Hi WebOJ, thanks for visitng me yesterday. I really like your photos and your sense of humor. Our reading tastes are similar too. I'm adding you to my favorites and will swing by as my Internet connection allows.
These dust storm photos made my eyes water.

This image is like the tv-images of the dessert-storm-war that the tv showed in 1991.
I irritate the eyes watching the picture. ;)

A dust storm, funny but I'd never seen one of these before. Is it dangerous?

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blogs by the way...:)

I haven't seen a dangerous one yet and hope I don't. They say if the winds blow hard, it could get dangerous.

That is really dusty! What happens if it gets in your lungs?!

Fantastic! We had a mini one here yesterday. The temperatures rose very quickly, and then the winds came in. Nothing like what you're accustomed to in KC.
