Dusty Day in OKC

On Thursday, we had a major dust storm in the city on Thursday. The wind was blowing around 30 mph with higher gusts. Not as bad as the Dust Bowl days but certainly a reminder that those days can return if we are not very careful. What the sky looked like. The reason for the dust. The sun in the afternoon. Here is the kind of dust storm my father knew as a child growing up in western Oklahoma during the 1930's. Dust Storm 1930's
