Ginger Skies and Everything Else

The world owns a rusty tinge today after the overnight dust storms. Earlier, the sun rose a bilious orange and visibilty was down to twenty metres. While the clouds are looking a bit dirty still the dust in the air has cleared a little, leaving in its wake a coating of Western Australia on my kittens’ feet, over the washing on the line, and absolutely everything else.

The chiminea might actually come up shiny after this.

Look! We have our very own Simpson Desert outdoor table (Dalhousie Springs sold separately).

So glad I washed the windows two weeks ago.

Guess what R will be doing for the rest of the day at the caryard…

    I'd heard about the dust storm, but these photos of the aftermath still shock. It must have been very frightening while it was happening – quite apocalyptic feeling. And I wonder about the effects on the farms whose top soil disappeared, and how long that damage will take to repair.

    Our outdoor chairs and table still look red. I washed my car during the day on Saturday not knowing that Brisbane was being attacked by a second wave of dust that night. I was not impressed.

    WriterBee: we didn't get it quite as bad as Sydney but it came on the heels of a huge thunderstorm and hail, so pretty extreme. While the cleanup here was annoying I think it would be another notch on the tough stick for farmers out west – so little decent soil as it is.
    ChallenCharms: Gar! Don't you just hate that! My husband wanted to clean up immediately but I'd heard there was going to be another dust storm so I left the cleanup as long as I could. It rained the night before last and there's STILL dust in the air.
