Dust Devils (these weak tornadoes made of dirt and dust)
are kinda cooler than the furious storm ones

Awesome photo- I love the scale of it and the contrast of the foreground with the background.

I went to a playground with my friends, and we were kicking up dust and stuff, it was really windy.... We created a dust devil on a soccer field... One my "friends" actually ran through it. It was actually quite wide, but we all had a good thrill out of it. :squee:

That's not a tornado, that's a dust devil. Dust devils are whirlwinds that occur on clear days and kick dirt up. True tornadoes are much more powerful, and are accossiated with wind shear caused by supercell thunderstorms, when dry air meats cool air in a thunderstorm, and causes a tornado

You put on a lot of makeup and you look so pretty you don't take it off at night. You think nothing will go wrong, but in the morning you have a bunch of pimples that no amount of makeup will cover up.

A dust devil is a tornado, just in the desert

No, a dust devil is narrower, and can't cause as mush damage as a tornado. BUT, a dust devil is pretty harmful, and people think it's a tornado because scientists tell them to do the same drill as you would for a tornado. But when you look at the picture, notice how it looks like dust. A tornado is wind, not dust. Duh, get your facts right!! Lol!

Not at all. A tornado, by definition, has to reach a cloud base and be touching the ground. However, if a dust devil reaches a cloud base, it does technically qualify as a tornado. Tornadoes are often enough caused by mesoscale weather patterns, whereas a dust devil (even many waterspouts, even though they count as a tornado) have much smaller areas that influence their development.
(Dust devils don't solely happen in the desert, also. They can even happen in, say, a Wal-Mart parking lot. :giggle: )

This would be a Dust devil, probably. A clear blue sky. Dust gets whirled up into swirls like this. But, It is BEAUTIFUL! Where was this taken?

That huge sky with its vibrant blues, the centering of the mountain in the background, the golden fields, the curving road, and of course that graceful tornado that seems to glow towards the bottom all come together to make a great photo.
