Wow... When I read about dust storms, It's hard for me to imagine, and I've realized that in the past, I have just passed them off as somewhat of a Dust Devil. Seeing these videos of several other Dust Storms really put a picture to those words in the story. They are unlike what I had imagined and it's crazy to think that they are still happening. Usually when we think of natural disasters like that... we tend to think that "oh... that was in the 1930's... that won't happen nowadays." But the fact of the matter is... they WILL happen... and they do. It's crazy to wrap my mind around that. Never realized how little I knew about the world.

I couldn't belive that there are other dust storms in different parts of the world especially in are day era. I wouldn't be surprised if the drought happens again they say that people learn from there mistakes we have more resources now sure. But we are also growing and taking away nature as we do it.

I never imagined it to be this devastating, but I did know about it happening now. People always say it couldn't happen to us, but actually it could, anything can happen. They also say that we learn from our mistakes, but so far I haven't seen it. People are to quick to blame others, and ignore the warning signs, to actually learn from their mistakes.

Wow this would be hella scary to be a part of. I mean reading about it is intense in some parts, watching it on video is crazy and those folks who drove into that giant wall of death are insane! But you're doing it for the people and it is neat to see. I just can't imagine ever seeing it for myself, I'd be terrified.
