dust storm pictures from 8/21

Picture taken at 6:54 pm... you can see it coming in from the west.

Picture taken at 6:57 pm... it's getting bigger.

Picture taken at 7:08 pm... it was dark enough that the street lights turned on!
Luckily, we didn't get the rain that came along with this dust storm; it went to the north and south of us. There was a LOT of flooding in parts of Phoenix, Mesa, and Scottsdale as a result of the rain. These dust storms are pretty impressive to watch, until they get close enough that you can feel the grit from the dust. Then, you want to be inside the house!
