I snapped the picture above on the way back from the ballfield this morning. We had a good day of baseball (Zack's team won 10-4) and then lunch with friends. At 6 pm, hubby said he could see a black cloud rolling in.
Within minutes, the sky went from white to gray and then red. I knew a possible dust storm was predicted for later tonite but was not expecting this. If you can imagine a hurricane and a blizzard all rolled into one but consisting of sand then that's basically what we got.
By 6:10 pm it was completely dark as the storm engulfed the sky.
It's predicted to last the next 5 hours. Visibility is zero. Zack and Yusef are stuck at friends so will be spending the nite. Winds are howling and the smell of dirt is overwhelming. I've lit some candles and will spend the night safe and sound inside letting my mind wander to much more pleasant images of the day.
So how's the weather in your neck of the woods? It's gotta be better than this!
Have a great weekend! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
