This was definitely one of the craziest sights I’ve witnessed stormchasing in Arizona. This was shot on May 9th, 2012, along Queen Creek road just east of Interstate 10. The wall of dust had hit me and was moving by for about 10 minutes when I looked out the window and saw this bit of clearing and an insane view straight up to some epic clouds.
It didn’t last too long, another wave of thick dust was a few minutes away, but for a second the sky appeared to show a giant dust tower reaching for clouds. Without the color, it almost looked like a bomb or something, with a giant mushroom cloud at the top.
