Interesting (and sad) that although Cesar Chavez's birthday is a state holiday in California, Colorado and Texas, it is not one in Arizona.

I've always referred to those ties as Bolero Ties and Google seems to agree its a valid term.

Nope. It's a bolo tie. Just because the term shows up in your search results doesn't mean it's valid - that's just the engine spitting it back at you. Bolero is a musical piece by Maurice Ravel - not related.

Correct. No one in Arizona wears a bolero tie. But then very few wears bolos.

Bolero is also a kind of jacket, similar to a shrug, with a cropped back.

They're bolo ties. Navajo souvenir stands have signs, drug stores have signs that read "bolo ties."

I've always heard it called a bolo tie. I don't think I remember ever hearing it called a bolero tie.

Haboob is a wind. It happens to be in the desert, so a dust storm results from the haboob.

Agreed. Wind should at a minimum be accepted.

I also would like to point out that nobody in Arizona actually ever called dust storms Haboobs until recently. I'm not sure when that started, but locals still give you the side eye like you're being weird and pretentious if you talk to us about the haboob in the forecast.
