A storm like that is hard for me, a California boy, to comprehend. No wonder so many folks headed west....
Can you imagine what got sucked into the carburetor, intake manifold and cylinders without some sort of air filter during one of these storms?
I'll bet it's a fire, not a storm.
Erik, when I first saw this picture a number of years ago, I thought it was a fire, too.
However, this past Fall, there was a great mini-series on the Dust Bowl, and this picture was displayed in it, and I think a movie as well. The commentator said it was a dust storm.
Either way, it wasn't much fun for the people in the picture.
Weather radar shows giant ‘storm’ of dust, bugs in Texas
To me it looks like a tornado.
The center of the dust cloud is Black and goes from the bottom to the top of the cloud.
On the left side it appears open with out dirt.
On the right of the Black center, the dust is drifting that way because the wind is blowing from the Left to the Right.
Common here, get them a lot!!!
Not even the side curtains would keep that out.
