A massive dust storm shrouds Lubbock Texas and is being fueled by a predicted long-term 9 year drought, experts say. Is this a glimpse of the beginning of another Dust Bowl that will wipe-out America's agricultural capability in the near future?

Cough cough! I live in San Antonio, Tx and you could smell the dust in the air. West texas always has sand storms so if you need to have you car sand blasted for a new paint job, West Texas is the place. Seriously. Thar dust storm isn't no dust bunnt on the ceil fan either. Glad it didn't come here.

The drought here during the summer caused a lot of small towns to be totally out of water and major lakes to dry up. Water had to be hauled in to these towns that had no water.
