My Life Is Average Monday: Haboob

Do you even know what a haboob is?

Is it
a. a traditional Muslim dress for women.
b. a fruit from the middle east.
c. an intense dust storm.
d. the capital of Pakistan.

...It's a dust storm! Always go with C, guys.

Arizona is warm/hot and sunny almost everyday. Some people love it, some people hate it. But whenever the it rains, hails or is cloudy everyone posts about it on facebook.

Last Tuesday, we had a really large dust storm.

Isn't that crazy looking?


I was inside when it happened and all I knew was that there was a dust storm. But Phoenix made global news! Thank goodness it wasn't dangerous. The consequence was just that my car was covered in dust. Check here for some videos and pictures

  1. It was so crazy! The mister and I went out driving and exploring the storm just because we'd never seen anything like it... We thought it was just a normal Arizona dust storm until we saw the news the next morning!

    Thank goodness our nice car lives in the garage since we still haven't managed to wash our mini-SUV, that thing is COVERED in dust! It's ridiculous! Haha! =)
