    Those pics are amazing! I can't imagine how gross it would be to be outside without a mask! Breathing that air can't be good!

    We get dust storms (they're called haboobs) like this that roll through Phoenix from time to time. Here's a picture of one rolling through Ahwatukee...

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
