Upon checking the dictionary, I have learned what a haboob is.

haboob
noun
a violent and oppressive wind blowing in summer, esp. in Sudan, bringing sand from the desert.
ORIGIN late 19th cent.: from Arabic habūb ‘blowing furiously.’

Now we know. (And knowing is half the battle!)

it started just outside tucson, and blew through phoenix into the outlying deserts in about 4 hours, and was 50 miles wide. massive. crunchy air. we get these all summer almost every year.

The dust still isnt cleaned up completely...the fine layer is just now beginning to kinda wash away...I really agree Victory7 i hope it marks as well! Cant wait for the rain..cant stand this humidity and heat.Anyone who doesnt live here has no idea of heat and humidity..tell me its a dry heat, my heinie...Haboobs are not fun at all...It was still evening by the time it hit my house and it was pitch black in about a full minute. And as bad as a white out only it was brown.

Ajikan...not fun at all. Kind of cool; but you can't really go outide. It went from sunny to pitch black in a matter of seconds and took HOURS for the dust to settle.
Cyberdynex...that's exactly what I was thinking when it got really bad last night.

Phoenix hasn't had a good one of these in many years. I hope this marks the return of the monsoon season!

I'm surprised by how much attention this got. I live there and it was intense, but I mean, only as intense as a dust storm can get... The weirdest part was how orange it is inside. Of course there is a lot of dirt on everything afterwords, but we've suffered much worse storms without all this media attention.

@Boredered - sandstorms are totally normal in the desert. all acrossed texas, new mexico, and arizona. The only reason California doesn't get them is because the mountains stop them at the border.

and how did you get "stoning people" out of what I said about sand storms?

Got drama?

The Dust Bowl did happen during the Great Depression.

It's not all THAT normal, and this is an excellent shot. I didn't know it was coming, so I was surprised when it went from early evening light outside to pitch black in about 5 minutes.

@Gerry1of1

Okay? And stonings of people to death are normal in the middle east. It's not normal to us so it still fascinates us. (as an example)
