That's an elegant idea that produces some fascinating results. But it leaves open one very important question. In real storms, what generates the electric field that polarises the sand particles in the first place? It looks like Pahtz and co will have interesting time ahead getting to the bottom of that one.
I'd like to see lightning in a sand storm.
The idea of the wind being a manifestation of plasma/electricty may have something to do with all this.
Hello redeye: I hate to pick nits, but isn't what you describe caused by plasma/electricty? Now that i've re-read your post i think we're in agreement. Is this the case? The sandstorm would be the visual manifestation of this process.
