After reading our recent story on drought and dust bowls (http://hcne.ws/dust-bowl) Mike Callicrate shared this photo he took from an airplane of a dust storm southeast of the Colorado Springs airport. He reports it was nearly four miles wide, 12,500 feet high, traveling at about 46 mph, and extended about 200 miles to the Colo.-Kans. border.
