While without much direct implication for ponzi market navigation strategy and tactics, the attached videos of Phoenix disappearing under a 5,000 foot tall dust storm, which at time was as tall as 10,000 feet, is stunning in its own right. As the Huffington Post reports "the massive dust cloud, also known as a "haboob," was around 5,000 feet when it arrived in Phoenix,
but radar data reveals that it reached heights anywhere from 8,000 to
10,000 feet high prior. The storm appeared to be around 50 miles wide
in some areas, KSAZ-TV reported. The dust storm originated in Tucson,
and was a part of Arizona's monsoon season. According to CNN, the dust storm prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to issue a ground stop on flights at Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport
for about an hour and 15 minutes. At it's peak, the storm left 10,000
customers without power, Jenna Shaver of the Arizona Public Service told
CNN."
