    Its natures way of saying “Go away, and take Sheriff Joe with you.”

    I walked home from the gym in that beast. I looked like a coal miner when I got home.

    lol. I was out on my back porch putting down ant bait in what I thought was a period of relative calm when I heard a neighbor yell at another who was in the pool that a dust storm was approaching. He told the kids that it was time to get out of the pool. This is as bad as the weather gets in Arizona: we have to get out of the pool. If it weren’t for the political bull-crap it would be quite the haven. Anyway, it didn’t seem too bad, but the wind was apparently sufficiently strong to tear a branch off of a neighbor’s tree in their front yard. Wasn’t as much damage as I’ve seen in other storms. Meh.

    Yeah, as a Phoenix-area resident, not sure why such a big deal was made by this (we get a few a year) …. that hailstorm last October is what really caused issues (this was taken a mile from my house):

    Clearly Herman Cain was right about the impending threat of Sharia Rule in America

    First came Falafel tolerance… then, they unquestioningly accepted “Haboob”…. next thing you know, you’re getting beaten in the street for trimming your beard too short.
