Straight out of the camera just a few minutes ago, no processing of any kind. It is utterly revolting out today (and hotter than a furnace, too)! Yuck *cough* yuck YUCK *cough cough cough*!

OMG! Get a mask!

Mojo said...

It's pretty vile here too. We have a ground-level ozone alert until 9PM. And it's awful outside. Bleah.

Jennifer said...

Yikes, not fun! Y'all stay safe and unclogged if you can! We have the heat and humidity, but not the dust.

quilly said...

Bummer. Stay inside. Keep the doors and windows closed. Get the broom and vacuum ready. I'm sure you know the drill.

Ania said...

Wow, cool. Never have seen anything like that so I can't even imagine.

caite said...

gosh, I am glad we don't get storms like that.

Stan said...

I know just what you are experiencing. Been through a few of those out in the Nevada desert. It is truly miserable.

So glad I lie almost in the country where the air is clear!

Hope your Wordless Wednesday is a happy one!

Couch choke sputter gasp, unbelievable, If we don't all wake up our entire and wan ourselves from oil dependency our planet will be like this before long!

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Wow! I can't imagine trying to breathe in that. Hope you stayed inside.

catsynth said...

In a way, it's impressive. Just visually. I actually *can* imagine trying to breath in that. It makes me think of the time I was at Burning Man :)

Honey, I'm from Atlanta, GA. We've got the same thing... only it's pollution... not dust.

I opened the large version of the photo. That must be really difficult to live with. The heat would make me sick alone. It looks worse than the smoke we got from Canadian forest fires, and we thought that was hazy. At least we didn't have sand blowing in. Your blog, by the way, is lovely. I like to cruise around and visit blogs I've never seen before. Glad I stopped by.
