Excellant dust storm photos!
When living in the 4 corners area of Utah I experianced a couple of storms that came at us looking just like these pics!
When one of those storms was over...I had jeep sised tumbleweeds up against my house......I only had like 9 weeds but they were so ENORMOUS! They almost hid my house from normal view.......

Storms like this DONT just happen in the middle east ya know.....we have a vast desert in the USA.

This IS normal.

N O R M A L........ya hear?

Wow, that really IS wild. Is there anyone from Mexico (or familiar with there) that would know if it was fairly common?

I wasn't aware they had those on our continent.

The dust storm is coming from OUTER SPACE!

The dust will burn up in the atmosphere making the sky turn to fire.

Get it right.

Happens ALL the time.....Albuquerque is mostly protected due to the Sandia mountains, but anywhere flat in New Mexico is fair game. Think those are scary, you should be drving down Route 66 and get attacked by a huge tumble weed.....THAT will scare the caca out of you sounds like your card was bombarded with a thousand little rocks (they blow up on impact)
I swear one time I had one that changed course just so it would hit my car

It's a common occurance in the southwest US especially during the North American monsoon season. It's called a "haboob" and it is formed when a line of thunderstorms collapses and produces a strong outflow.
--------------------------------
A haboob is a type of intense dust storm characteristic of very dry regions. They are most commmonly observed in the Sahara desert and in the dry regions of the United States Southwest, such as Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

There's a stretch of highway, between Deming, NM and Bowie, Az.
Pretty common dust storms, every now and again a Semi will litterally get blown off the road.
Another area that has numorous multi-car pile ups is the stretch ut by Grants. To bad people don't just pull over after they can't see anymore.

we had a dust storm here a couple years ago and i remember watching the dust clouds roll in, it was both awesome and scary watching this mass of dust bigger than anything i have ever seen rolling in.

I guess it just depends on where you live. If I saw a dust storm like that, I'd probably freak. But then again, a lot of people who live inland, would freak if they were ever involved in a hurricane on the coast.
Here... we just have hurricane parties

I doubt they have dust storm parties, huh??

Depends Cheshire Cat. I live in the desert and if it rains after the dust storm we go out for beers afterwards, but since it's so sudden there isn't much prep time like watching a cane roll in.
