My First Attempt at a VIDEO: Shamal

This is my attempt to share a video I took about 1/2 hour after the first wall of dust and wind hit us here on the 11th. Visibility was about 1/10 of a mile and the winds were from the northwest at 35-40 knots.
It takes a REALLY long time to upload a video to You Tube from here, so this is a Google Picasa attempt.

From 2009 02 11 Shamal
Click on it and see what happens...also feel free to view the rest of the pictures from this album here. I didn't take many, conditions weren't great for the camera.
The wind has died down considerably today, but the dust is still suspended in about the lowest 500 feet. Visibilities are up to about 3 miles, but dust is still getting everywhere, including my laptop as I type this. Don't fret, Dave sent me plenty of canned air and computer cleansing wipes.

Nice video. How do you like the new camera?

Are indoor activities affected during a dust storm, e.g. can't work out in the gym, dust in your food at chow?

Chia Homer looks more like Krusty the Clown with that long hair!

The camera is working well enough. I can't be as precise with closeups as with my Canon Digital Elph, which I left with Dave to get pics of the boys to accompany his witty comments.

Shhh! Re: Chia Homer. I'm working on the post now!
