The haboob last week was a sight to see! Thankfully it didn’t do much damage, but it did start me thinking about the intensity of the dust storm and the fact that so little rain was associated with it here in Phoenix.
I wrote a series exploring the haboob and its possible connections to urbanization for Firefly Living.
Take a look:
