This one is neat where you can see the storm
cloud and the clear blue sky before the dust
storm hits. Great series. Thank you for
sharing your photos. Sorry your area was hit
with this.

Thanks Betsy ! We're surrounded by cotton fields here in West Texas so every time we get a big storm such as this , the fields get up in the air .

I thought the 30's Dust Bowl lessons were instituted to prevent this.

Does this kind of storm happen in your area very often? Looks scary and messy.

Dang! I really hope I never happen to be where
a thing like this crops up! Freaky! Did you, at
least, get some moisture after the wall went
through? Awesome series, Tim!

Wow!! Awesome shots of a very nasty storm. Reminds me of the photos taken during the Dust Bowl of the '30's. M

Oh Man! To be covered over like that would be VERY scary.

I don't see how you could keep the dust out of your camera unless you put it in a big zip lock bag.

How long did it take to pass? Does it disappear as abruptly as it starts, or just fade away?

About docshovel39

docshovel39

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . My older brother Steve turned me on to digital photography eight or so years ago and I have truly enjoyed it - thanks Steve ! My favorite work , apart from his , is a fantastic book entitled "Ghosts In The Wilderness" by photographers Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , many of the photos done in monochrome . I am also a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thanks to the Wunderground community for having me and making the experience so much more enjoyable !
