Mixed Weather Bag

Yesterday we had some crazy weather.
Hazy skies on our drive to meet friends for lunch.
While there, I mentioned that it looked like there was dust, but since there was thunder everyone just thought we were going to get some much needed rain.
Which we did on the way home.
But then, at 3:50 p.m., I noticed it starting to get darker, and that's when everything started to change.
These pictures were taken between 3:50 and 4:30 p.m. and show the progression of the dust storm that took over the sky.  Thankfully it all passed through fairly quickly but it rained just enough at the tail end of the storm to make everything very mucky.  
Still a bit hazy today when I ventured out to meet my craft group for a morning of crocheting, knitting and cross-stitching.
Always fun to see what everyone else is up to.

Hope your Saturday is a good one!

Wild weather indeed and your timed photos look like a color chart for painting. We are having wild weather also with snow and hail but thankfully no dust. Not very conducive to house showings. Fun times with your hands on craft group. Stay safe dear...<3

The changes in the sky are incredible. I was thinking as I was reading that the rain mixed with the dust must make some mess. Glad you went to your stitching group. I miss the one I used to go to. Have a great weekend.

I'm amazed at the dust storms you have. My parents lived in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl and the dust storms suffocated many kids and ruined the lungs of families and especially the children and babies. I'm glad you got to spend a nice time with the other crafters. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Wow! That is some kind of dust storm! And, I'll bet it was pretty mucky after a rain. But, being with other yarnies is always a cure for bad weather! ;) blessings ~ tanna

Preeti said...

That's a lot of change in the sky within an hour! Nice to see the creative collage from your craft group.

That is an amazing sky! Do you end up with lots of dust and sand in your home? Glad it didn't last long. We have snow this morning! It shouldn't last long and it is still pretty to me. :) Have a great week! :) Kit

I saw the picture on Instagram...amazing sky! Weather can be so much fun to watch...

Betsy said...

Wow! Those pictures are incredible. They remind me a lot of the smokey skies we've had the past two summers from the forest fires. I can only imagine the yucky that was left after the rain. I also enjoyed seeing the various projects at your craft group. Everything looks beautiful. I go to a small group on Tuesday mornings and always enjoy seeing what the other ladies are making.
Blessings,
Betsy

Incredible changes in 40 minutes! I remember the monsoons (sand storms) that we saw in Phoenix, Arizona - like something you might see in one of the Mummy movies when an entire sand dune launches into the sky. Everything was a mess afterwards.

Love the projects in your collage, especially the Japanese (I assume) lady carrying the umbrella - lovely!

Amazing photo's, I remember the inside my home way always covered in a fine layer of sand after a stand storm it took ages to get rid of the mess. I hope you enjoyed your crafting, I have my crochet group this afternoon. Have a great week. :) x

Fabulous photos of the sky and the hand work is beautiful. It's always nice to see what colors, yarns, etc. draw in other folks.

Wow! The dust storm progression pics are amazing! I can imagine the rain was probably more like mud.

Linda said...

Such eerie skies! Glad it cleared up quickly for you.

Wow, Tammy, I wouldn't like to have a dust storm but the colors are just amazing! It's always inspring to meet with creative friends, isn't it?

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Tammy,
Wow, that sky color looks unreal but we know by experience that the sky can have different colors in different countries.
Also when flying you can see such different orange like hues.
Not an easy climate to live in and for growing anything...
Love those knitting and crocheting projects in your photos.
Great to meet with kindred spirits and it is the best therapy!
Hugs,
Mariette

Your series of dust storm photos look amazing. Nothing is as awesome as nature.
Your post reminded me of an Australian city that has very changeable weather - Melbourne is well known for "having four seasons in one day." Visitors to Melbourne are advised to take a cardigan and an umbrella all year around!

We get dust storms in Adelaide occasionally when the north wind brings it all down from the deserts inland. I can appreciate the muddy muck left on everything after the dust and the rain. I hate it when there has been dust about but the rain ends up only a light sprinkle, not enough to wash away the dirt and dust but just enough to create mud.

I hope you didn't have too much extra cleaning to do.
