The Haboob

As pretty much everyone who lives in Phoenix noticed, we had a huge dust storm (or Haboob) last night (7.5.11).  People got some amazing pictures of a huge wall of dust overtaking the city, and at the restaurant we fought a battle to keep the dust out! Twitter blew up with super cool pics and updates from around the valley, part of me feels that people just wanted to type #Haboob.  It was totally surreal outside (if you could stand it), the dust was so thick in the air. Here’s a few pics:

The picture below was taken by my friend Tom Phillips Jr. in Ahwatukee. It was taken just a few miles from my house as the wall of dirt overtook the city!
