Lubbock Haboob 2011

If you have ever been to west Texas you know that the wind here is just something you deal with. We have all learned to embrace it with a pony tail holder in hand. Well yesterday was one of not only the windiest days lately with winds topping out near hurricane force at 73 MPH but because of lack of rain this year it created quite a dust storm. So as Lubbock makes national news I'd like to share some pictures taken by myself and friends.

 Despite the coughing and dust that lay everywhere this was such an amazing sight to see. People living here for 65 years say they have never seen anything like this. Personally I wouldn't mind seeing it again, as long as I am inside ;O)
