'That's mother nature!' Texas farmer films massive dust storm swallowing up fields

A farmer in Knott, Texas caught a massive dust storm on camera as it advanced on the fields he was working on Tuesday (June 4).

The farmer stood in his field, looking over the land he had ploughed and not ploughed before panning up to reveal the colossal sandstorm.

A later clip showed how he took cover in the cabin of his tractor as the storm raged overhead, completely cloaking the vehicle in a dark and dense cloud of dust, before eventually breaking and letting in some sunlight.

The farmer's commentary jokingly pointed out the elements of his situation, saying: "That's ploughed ground, that's a baby cotton plant. That's unploughed ground, that's a tractor," before revealing the dust storm and laconically adding: "... and that's Mother Nature!"
