We had a large dust storm come through. It was reported to be 30 miles wide and 2500 feet tall. For comparison the giant storm of July 2011 was 50 miles wide and 5000 feet tall by the time it hit Phoenix (that was down from 8000-10,000 feet in the desert south of the valley.
It reminded me of a tidal wave.
And the view as the storm approached our house.
