Epic Dust Storm Sweeps Through Valley

Visibility as low as 50 feet. Muddy rain. Powdery stuff on teeth, in lungs. Blacked-out neighborhoods -- until you got close enough to see that the lights really were on.

Tonight's dust storm was dustier than the typical Arizona haboob, with fine particles just hanging in the air even during lulls in the gusty wind.

Definitely one to remember. Good luck to all drivers out there.
