The season opened with an epic haboob (or dust storm) over Phoenix on July 3rd, and it may have just capped off the monsoon with another beautiful dust storm yesterday evening.
I was behind this thing after chasing down south for most of the afternoon, and it was all I could do to make my way through the dust safely and come out on the other side to time-lapse this bad boy.
I stopped first near Riggs Road and I-10 to get it marching through the desert, and then raced to my favorite spot downtown to get it with that epic view of Phoenix.
This guy was moving fast...the video is only from 6:21 to 6:44pm...but I'm glad I got there when I did. The way it comes over the mountains always blows my mind, and then watching Phoenix get completely engulfed is something I never get tired of seeing.
If this indeed near the end of the monsoon, it sure is going out with style!
