Dust Storm in La Cañada

The sun setting into the dust

Driving north on the 210 from central Pasadena this afternoon, I saw what looked like another fire — thick brown smoke on top of the clouds. Circumstances wouldn’t allow me to check it out, but before long I heard from my friend Bruce Moision, who works at JPL. He said they were in the middle of a big dust storm, a result of the winds and the fire-bared landscape. He has his friend Matt Klimesh headed for a rooftop and put Matt’s camera to work. Here are a couple of photos.

It’s probably not a good idea to go jogging in west Altadena, northwest Pasadena or La Cañada until this settles down….

  1. I don’t know when you hit the dust in LaCF, but here in Pasadena it started up around 5pm and lasted over an hour!
