This is Kansas. It gets windy. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s been windier in the past.

But the DUST! I’ve never seen anything like the dust we’re seeing today. It’s so bad there are weather alert warnings being issued, and visibility is definitely affected.

Here are 3 shots from north of Lindsborg taken a couple of hours before sunset.
