Ever wonder what an approaching sandstorm REALLY looks like?
Now you know!
The pictures are at the bottom of that album... we saw this coming on the horizon, and it took about 20 minutes to get on top of us. The pictures barely capture the sheer spectacle of this thing. The sky looked "bruised", and when it reached us, you could literally see the huge plumes high overhead, and the dust fell for almost an hour afterwards... then the humidity hit. Yuck.
