Dust Storm In Phoenix 3 of 4

This was taken last week Tuesday, two doors down from my home in central Phoenix. At about 4:30 pm the sky (with no clouds) should be very clear, bright, and even bright blue. You can see the brown dust swooping across the area but what looks like mist or fog, but isn't. See the other three images for the color of the sky. That's what attracted me to run outdoors to start shooting photos. I was inside and looked out a window and thought "Hey! The sky is NOT supposed to be that color".

 

My son flew in that night for his leave from his Air Force base in Japan. When he saw these photos later the next day, he marched right over to the little Salvation Army building on the corner by my home to insist they take down the flag. On the spot, they did and plan to get a new one.
