LAMAR - Instead of having a white Christmas, some folks in the southeast corner of Colorado got a brown Christmas.
Dust storms several miles wide swept over communities like Lamar.
Video and pictures were sent to 9NEWS by Jeffrey West who was visiting his family in Lamar.
"The dust storms moved really fast. It must [have] been upwards of 60 mph," West said.
West also said the storm left several inches of dust on homes and sidewalks once it passed.
