Haboob (no - I am not talking double DD)

Friday, July 08, 2011

Don't know if you watched the national news, but we had a 'haboob' (no - I am not talking double DD)

KSAZ reported it as a wall of dust 'around 5,000 feet when it arrived in Phoenix, but radar data reveals that it reached heights anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 feet high prior. The storm appeared to be around 50 miles wide in some areas."

It left every window, rock table, floor, car, blade of grass, and even the water for the pups, full of dirt/dust.

Two days so far to get the first and second levels of dust off. emoticon

'Oh how I wish that it would rain emoticon
Really, Really HARD and LONG time.
For us that would be any rain which lasted more than an hour - lol.

I've really had to dust off my sense of humor!
I know - GROAN

The phrase this week for me was 'clean', but I've had to go to Plan B - 'less dust'.

Here is a link to copy and paste so you can see Phoenix's haboob and understand why I am going to dust for a looooooooooooooong time:

    I know what this is.....we had them quite frequently when we lived in Oklahoma....only the dust was bright red. Looked like you were surrounded with blood. The first time I saw one I had no idea what it was. I was at work & when I looked out the window....RED. Getting it off my windshield to be able to drive home was a horror show. According to my staff, everything depended on how the wind patterns were on any particular day. So.....give me snow.
