Amarillo, Texas -- March 18th, 2014

A cold front reached the Texas Panhandle by Tuesday afternoon. North winds caused dust to blow across the High Plains, creating near-zero visibility.

One area of blowing dust pushed through the Lubbock, Texas area around 4pm Tuesday. Shortly after, another area of blowing dust worked into the Northern Texas Panhandle -- after moving south out of Colorado.

As the dust reached Texas, twitter and social media responded. Below is a look at some of those tweets (in no particular timeline)
