Arizona Monsoons

It's monsoon season in Arizona.  That's the time of year when we experience sudden storms with blowing dust and rain.  I was driving home from work on Monday evening and this is what I was driving into.


It was a bit scary.  My husband Greg called me to warn me but I was already on the 101 heading home.  

I posted these photos on Facebook but I thought I'd post them here for those who aren't into that.

I  know I shouldn't have been taking photos while driving on the highway but at least I wasn't texting.  And I have to add that I was careful and just used one hand to snap these.

And thank the Lord, I got home safely too!

  3. We sure could use the rain. Maybe with the hurricane coming up in the pacific will give us some much needed relief. Thank goodness all is well while you were driving.

  4. That does look terrifying! I saw it on the news. I can't imagine seeing something like that. Does the dust come through the vents on the car too? I'm grateful you are ok!

    Well my friend, I have a much prettier blog button if you would like to replace that ugly old one. Ha. I appreciate you!

  10. Oh Debbie!
    I've driven through some nail biting, terrible storms (rain, wind, snow and hail), but never a dust storm!
    I can't imagine the lack of visibility. Praise GOD, He is your shield and protector!
    Thanks for sharing. ((HUGS))

  11. I live here and I've never seen dust storms like this. One time John and I got caught in one on our way home from San Diego. We had to pull over at a rest stop because of the lack of visability.
    Loved the pics., but you be careful. No one ever thinks a wreck will happen to them.
