    Dust.... Not just in Iraq

    Well there is a dust storm going on right now... I have never been through one but this is what it must be like in Iraq.

    Here is a picture:


    The grey stuff is not fog, it is red dust. I will take more in a while... It is getting worse by the minute.

    Wow, that's wild! We had one some months ago that swept over most of the state. It was exacerbated by the drought.

    You call that a dust storm? Bah...

    Let me know when you have one where you can't see more than a foot in front of your face. Though since we have had rain this year, we might not have any here in the California desert this summer. Last year they were horrendous because there hadn't been any rain for over 18 months. If we have any this summer, I will take some pictures and post them.

    Yeah, I have been told that this one wasn't all that bad... As soon as all of the crops are harvested, then it gets bad because there is nothing to hold the dirt down. Post some pictures if you take any Wayne... I am not used to seeing the sky red with dirt
