West Texas Dust Storm - It's a Brown Out Folks

View out my backdoor - oh, and it's only 5: 40 p.m.

Ummmm, we're having a bit of dust + 60 mph. winds! :-(( The dust completely devoured the sun.
I told you I'd get picture of a really good dust storm.

@ Erin,the dust is really nasty;it gets into the house even with the windows closed. This is one really gnarly dust storm. The weather said the wall was 8000 feet high.

@ Jen,I know-it looks really creepy huh? Inside the house it was like nightfall,and outside it was absolutely orange.There were downed trees, power lines, wrecks due to no visibility, fences blown down, fallen branches and lots of roof damage from this storm passing through.

I couldn't imagine something like that. I think it's something I'd prefer not to experience. Very eerie.
