Wild, crazy weather around the globe

This past week produced some wild and crazy weather on our planet ... from the enormous "haboob" that rolled through the Phoenix area ... to an extremely rare snowfall in one of the driest places in the world ... we're talking about the Atacama Desert of Chile.

Some places in that desert have no visible vegetation, and have never recorded actual precipitation.
But this winter is proving to be a wet one ... some parts of the desert measured over 30 inches of the white stuff!!

Intense flooding has damaged thousands of homes in China, and days of extreme winds caused serious damage in portions of Australia.
