Wednesday’s El Paso Dust Storm Seen Through Facebook and Twitter [PHOTOS]

The cold front blew in Wednesday as expected kicking up 60 m.p.h. winds and the inevitable dust storm. By mid-afternoon, the nice, sunny day had given way to so much dust in the air you could barley make out the Franklin Mountains.

This series of photos, taken over the course of a couple of hours and posted to Facebook by Cindy Sellers, illustrates how quickly the view changed. Keep an eye on the mountains in the background.

The winds eventually settled down, replaced by light rain and snow flurries across parts of the Borderland. Yep, it was a crazy 48 hours of weather for El Paso!
