It’s a little windy out there.
Dateline: Phoenix. Timelapse: Haboob.
Mike Olbinski first invited viewers to “follow along with me during the summer monsoons in Arizona” with last week’s timelapsed Downtown Phoenix Sunset - An omen for the Monsoons.
The photographer describes his latest video short (Massive Haboob Hits Phoenix - July 5th 2011, shown above) by saying, “No words to describe this. I’ve lived in Phoenix for 35 years and seen tons of dust storms. This was something else entirely.”
Now we’re curious to see what kind of summer monsoonery he’ll timelapse on Vimeo next.
If you’d like a taste of that mindless, scurrying animal fear still bubbling somewhere behind your prefrontal cortex, then here’s your juice. Drink up.
Well, maybe this was a little more intense that the usual dust storm….
The Nothing just rolled into Tempe.
It’s called a haboob. Which sounds way more fun than the 70MPH wall of dust it actually is.
Haven’t you seen this before, LaDawn? I know there was a good one, probably four or five years ago. Maybe longer. But I remember the wall of dust coming in from the south.
Massive Dust Storm engulfs downtown Phoenix, AZ.
Woah. Cindy McCain’s coven is working over time.
Please don’t insult Wiccans. Thanks.
Me on the porch with approaching haboob. (dust storm)
I missed the haboob! That’s okay I’ve seen one before. I’m having more fun in NH, anyway.
