Why Not Drive Directly Into an Apocalyptic Dust Storm?

Uh oh! God is mad about Casey Anthony. So mad he sent an enormous, end-times style haboob, or dust storm, to sweep across Phoenix. (Just kidding! There is no God, only the aimless movement of sand across the desert waste.) And the fellow who filmed this video seems to have realized that the best way to confront the Apocalypse is by driving right into it.

I don't understand why, when perfectly normal (though rare) things like this happen people call them apocalyptic or compare them to doomsday. It's an interesting exercise to observe people's collective ideas on the end of the world. But I am pretty sure none of us really knows what that might look like. Why can't we be inspired by this great force of nature, or be awed by it? Why do we immediately think of destruction and the tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth? Why must we immediately become Richard Simmons and bemoan the end of the world?
