Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Jan Brewer back in town, huh?

Mikey1969: alaric3: what's a "haboob"?

It's the new trendy title for something that's been called a 'Dust storm' in the Phoenix area for about 150 years. Since the cool kids in Iraq had a nifty name for it, everyone decided to jump on the bandwagon in Phoenix.

Can you tell that I think this "haboob" shiat is utterly ridiculous? I hate trendy shiat.

Well, to be honest they are much worse now that environmentalists won't let us put up the fences in the desert.

RightWingNutjob: /I'm sure your state is a magical paradise of fairies and elves?

Mine is. We're overrun with them. Fortunately, hunting season starts soon.

R-pac: Howcome they recommend pulling over to the side of the road and putting your car in park, then they tell you to turn off all your lights and keep your foot off the brake. They don't want your car to be visible to other potential drivers in the event of a dust storm?

Lights spook the haboob unless it's wearing a habra.

And sadly, the Phoenix Civic Art Project: Giant Floating Klein Vagina doesn't catch haboobs it just sends them backwards and forwards through time.

BunkyBrewman: See what you get Arizona?

Normal weather patterns for this time of year?

There is a metric ton of derp in this state. The weather is sort of a nice break from alternate reality.
