Last night I was talking to I was talking someone about growing in Phoenix and how being used to the desert makes going to Burning Man not much of a strange adjustment. He said "minus the dust storms of course." Then I told him the stories of the Dust Storms I grew up with, the cars having to pull over to the side of the road because of sudden 0 visibility, psa's on what to do and how to protect yourself during a dust storm, and warnings about Valley Fever. These storms have become much less common as Phoenix was built up and paved over over the years.
Little did I know at the time of this conversation, Phoenix had just suffered a few hours earlier what is now a rare dust storm, with 50mph winds and power out in over 10,000 homes. Funny thing is, I miss this. They can be dangerous and scary, but they can also be beautiful.
