"oh my God, oh my God, we're going to die" that is what would be going though my mind as I enjoyed the impressive view

Some people are have interesting behaviours. Have you seen some of the tsunami videos where the water goes out, and people are going out to explore and see what is going on?

Curiosity overrides fear sometimes....

I saw that kind of dust storm off Baja Mexico a few years ago. Good breeze when it hit. Surfed for hours out to sea...fifty miles the wrong way. In the morning the boat was completely red-brown. Storm looked worse than it was.

We were anchored in Turtle Bay during one of those. My daughter thought it was hilarious that we were heeling over so far at anchor, but, unfortunately, I didn't keep my VHF on that night and didn't know someone had dragged up onto the beach.
