3. Wow, what a photo!

That first one should be printed and framed, it is fascinating and beautiful. Kind of like a moon made of dust descending.

4. Technical name for that

is "haboob" but too many people won't use the word because it's Arabic.

6. been called duststorms all my life and I grew up in the area. and I am old.

monsoons were always called summer storms too.

I think people do call them haboobs more now - someone gave me a bumper sticker that says Arizona girls have big haboobs.

10. I've heard monsoon since I moved here in the 70s

Haboob I started hearing in the late 90s.

13. Grew up in Scotts. myself. Went to U of A and have been in my share of storms

In both places and in between. Was always a dust storm. Haboob came much later. When social media became a thing.

Although the word Haboob, I think, is some old Middle Eastern dust storm word…

5. great shot!

I'm in Tempe right now came up last Thursday the 25th. saw one on the way up and got a picture too, but it wasn't anywhere as good as that one. and of course I don't have access to my photo account until I get home, tomorrow.


why does traffic always jam up at Riggs Road/Queen Creek???? I haven't been back to Tempe in the last ten years when EVERY single time, no matter day, or time that there isn't a huge slow down. and there is never any obvious reason, never a wreck or anything visible to explain it. after you get going again traffic moves faster at rush hour in town. WTF?

11. Captured a PHOTO of the dust storm.

I they had captured the dust storn you'd never see or hear from them again.

I'm just a stickler for proper sentence composition. No offense intended.

14. Sorry about that.

I can't help myself. Sometimes I believe I have OCD about simple things like that. I wish I didn't. Really.
