Sudden white:  The White-out    3-06-2003


 Have you noticed the sky turning from blue to white in minutes?  The white may seem to move in from nowhere -- Without wind, without a front or weather system.  And it often happens in air which is too dry to produce real clouds. 
These photos show an onslaught of aerosol clouds increasing to a pure dense white within 20 minutes.  All were taken from our back yard-- Notice the same phone pole in photos on right.
