I haven't read all the comments, but where were you when it came? And where did you stay when it was there? And how long did it take  from start to finish?    P

They are caused from the down drafts from thunderstorms over the deserts. When the draft hits the dry desert floor it picks the dirt up and it begins to roll, picking up more as it travels.

Thanks for all the nice comments. It was really crazy. We are still cleaning the dust off of, and out of, everything that didn't get rained on.
