After living in the Desert Southwest for 26 years not, I should be used to this by now…

A beautiful afternoon sky that is soon to be overtaken by…
DUST!
The monsoon season (rainy season) is officially upon us.  While I like the rain, I don’t particularly like the occasional dust storms that appear ‘out of the blue’ to speak literally.
I guess that I should be grateful that it isn’t an enormous one like we received last year…
That one was a ‘monster’ haboob (another word for dust storm).
But I must admit, that it was an exciting experience…
I wrote about it last year, if you would like to see more photos of this enormous dust storm.
