They're frigging huge. That windmill's probably 2 stories. And I think that it looks like it's at the same depth as the devils.

They happen only in the desert? I seem them all the time in the Kansas prairies between Topeka and the Colorado border. Especially in a dry year. But we can agree that they are awesome sights.

In the city, there are "trash devils" sometimes. Usually pretty small, but I've seen some at least 6 feet high.

At a Red Sox spring training game, I saw a Hat Devil. Picked this woman's hat off by the visiting dugout, toyed with it all across the infield, dropping it occasionally and going back to pick it up. The hat wound up behind the home dugout. Quite a show, stopped the game for a good minute. Very "American Beauty". Sox won, beat Orioles.
