It's actually a "dust devil" like this one... but a bit larger:



This from Wikipedia:

A dust devil is a strong, well-formed, and relatively long-lived whirlwind, ranging from small (half a meter wide and a few meters tall) to large (more than 10 meters wide and more than 1000 meters tall). The primary vertical motion is upward. Dust devils are usually harmless, but rare ones can grow large enough to threaten both people and property.

They are comparable to tornadoes in that both are a weather phenomenon of a vertically oriented rotating column of air. Most tornadoes are associated with a larger parent circulation, the mesocyclone on the back of a supercell thunderstorm. Dust devils form as a swirling updraft under sunny conditions during fair weather, rarely coming close to the intensity of a tornado.

I have major tornado phobia. So to see something even like that upsets me. Scary.


Who's going to do the cooking?!?!

You know, I am a born and bred "city" girl. So you always hear that it wouldn't happen in the city. And we all know that isn't true. I can remember when I was a kid being terrified when the sirens used to go off (and they used to go off a lot when I was little). I can remember going in the basement and just waiting until it was done. And it has never been a thrilling thought for me. So even in the city, I get paranoid. I am a little more on edge when there is that threat of dangerous storms (like the other day) coming into the state. And I am really not a happy person when there is that "feeling" in the air. I always remember Whoopi Goldberg's character in "The Color Purple" saying "It feels like twister weather". When you are as crazy as I am about this, that is a very unsettling feeling.
