Would you look at that. Do we have this kind of storm in the states -- jodimiller
Sometimes, in the desert Southwest. -- weathermatrix
Can you see sand storms on radar, and if so do they look different than thunderstorm -- jodimiller
This is why the military is spending so much money in Iraq. The sand is hard on everything. -- johnstownwildfire
They are usually caused by thunderstorm gust fronts, which you can see on radar. I caught one earlier this year in Phoenix on radar here -- weathermatrix
Nice picture. Americans want our troops back home! Ron Paul 2012 to put an end to the wars and fix the debt problem. -- polska17
