    Sand Cloud

    Desert storm: Huge cloud of sand descends on Chinese village | Mail Online

    The sand cloud reminds us of the Great Depression Days.

    Looks like the weather is going wacky. Then there was the Guatemala sinkhole.

    Re: Sand Cloud

    I read a great book about the dust bowl ( The Worst Hard Time by Tim Eagan) and it described dust storms that started in TX and went all the way to Washington DC before ther subsided. Great (and easy) read if you like history books. May father remembers red dust settling in western Iowa that came from TX and OK.
