Hey, I finally know what it was like to live through the dust bowl. For two days the wind howled and blew the dust and dirt around here. 80 mph winds at times. The Salt Lake City area is in a state of drought, so there's plenty of dust to blow. Add in lots of road construction and you've got skies darkened by dust whipped up in the stiff wind. Cheap thrill for those of you who haven't yet seen tumbleweeds in real life...when you hit them with your car, they explode into hundreds of weed shards. Most of the time, one tries to avoid 'em, but ya know, how can you resist hitting an exploding plant?? :-)
