    Kudos to you, Neil. I came here tonight fully expecting you to blame this dust storm on global warming, even though it’s happened every few decades since the English took over your rock, long before AGW was supposed to have started.

    It just proves that I haven’t got you pegged yet.

    Kudos again.
