I once lived in Lubbock. I had the "Lubbock Survival Kit" - surgical face mask and cap, goggles.

Haven't you noticed the politicians that state has churned out this century? Something must be done about them.

I have a stupid question.

What kind of precautions do people take for dust storms?

How do you deal with them?
10:26 PM on 10/18/2011
Not a stupid question at all. I've lived through four dust storms in Austin, although I have to admit that I've never seen anything like the one in Lubbock.

The most important thing you can do is to keep your face covered as much as possible. In a storm of this intensity, you could literally choke on the dust (see "Dust Bowl"). If you are indoors and the storm is that bad, stay inside. If you are outside, seek shelter immediately. If you are in a car or any other vehicle, stay inside the vehicle. Storms like this only stay for anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours. Events like this are rare, so there's no real way to prepare for the possibility except to carry a handkerchief with you, just in case.

Nothing much really. Just put anything indoors you dont want to get dirty. Good thing is the dirt is fairly light and comes off easy. They look worst then they are.

This kind of thing happens in China all the time. Texans will get used to it.

Filling the mind with facts...or trivia?

Many West Texans that have lived here for years are already used to it. Back in the sixties one came thru my hometown that etched the windows and sand blasted the paint off vehicles.

Perry's immigration policy appears to have angered White Jesus.

Hey Perry what do you call this storm? They say God works in mysterious ways. I'll say he is messing with your state. We will wait and see what is next? Hopefully you will secede and we will be done with you.

I think I would move to a green place if I lived there. Oh, yeah, that's what I did, and I never regretted it.
