First major apocalyptic dust storm since we moved to Midland. Rolled in at about 1145am yesterday. Impressive. Little scary.
The skies were dark brown for a couple of hours. Visibility was about half a mile most of the afternoon. It left EVERYTHING covered in brown dust. Quite an experience. We’ve had a couple of big dust storms over the past ten months, similar to what we experienced two or three times a year living in Amarillo. But nothing like what happened here yesterday. The dramatic and choking wall of dirt was something to behold.
