I've been following it as well on the NWS website and they sure did seem to
get it right. It was pretty breezy when I left work at 1430 (Just .4 mile
from Tom & Jenn's house) and South Mountain was pretty obscured by dust.

Better today than Saturday.

The timing of this system seems to have been predicted very well, as I
remember seeing the "blowing dust" icon on Thursday when I looked at the
NWS site last Sunday.  The forecasters have good reason to be confident
that it will have calmed down by tomorrow, as the trough is moving along at
a good clip.  I'd expect a calm, cool, transparent Friday night with poor
seeing.  Right now, it's looking good for Saturday as well, although it's
much more difficult to predict when the high clouds might enter the picture.
