Not a haboob, but a haboob

Residents of Arizona objected to recent dust
storms being referred to by meteorologists as “haboobs.”
“While other countries in the world may call them that,
this is the United States,” wrote one reader of the
Arizona Republic. “This is Arizona, not some Middle
Eastern nation.”
