Hey! We're (In)Famous!

Here's an article in the Daily Mail about the dust storms that rolled over us a few days ago, with lotsa pics... like this one:

Rolling in: The gigantic dust storm is seen from a plane as it headed towards Amarillo

We're experiencing another such event today, with more "brisk" winds and way too damned much dust in the air, which some people call haze.

"Haze," my ass.  That's dust, fellas.

No outdoor Happy Hour today.  (sigh)


  1. I'm a little confused by the caption on the picture.
    Was the dust storm headed for Amarillo ...or the plane?

    1. I think it's the storm they're on about.

  2. "'Haze,' my ass. That's dust, fellas."

    It appears, IMHO, the weather folks don't recognize dust as a meteorological condition ...and it's too damn dry to call it fog.

    1. I've seen short weather captions stating "blowing dust" in the past. Just why we're not seeing that today shall remain a mystery.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
