Great shot! I think it would actually be an awesome thing to see. Of course, from a safe distance. We don't get these in Central PA. We have no sand! lol

WOWEE, Mike!!! You really captured that first part of the storm beautifully, with the clouds and dust cloud rolling together!! Magnificent!! I hope you sent this to the TV stations to air!
(my sister missed this one---she's gone on a trip. Probably be happy she wasn't around!) Thanks so much for sharing this event with all of us!! :-)

Amazing phenomenon - not too sure I would actually like to experience one in person though. Thanks for putting it up on the screen for us all to view from the safety of our homes.

Wow is this a little early?
Watched the video. I think this is your best yet with the dust moving against the clouds & the gustnado! Hope it didn't do any damage.
