Dust Everywhere!

This was the scene driving back to Brisbane yesterday from Lamington as the dust storm from New South Wales headed north. Thousands of tons of soil have been displaced to form a cloud 400 kms wide by 2000 kms long stretching across eastern Australia. I was told by a couple of locals that in the west of the state, people will find that as a result they now have to step down an extra foot when they walk out the back door...
I think they may have been taking advantage of my gullible nature.

At least I have a good excuse for having a dirty car now.

Unbelievable, wasn't it? Looks like it was just as orange as it was here in Sydney.

'Twas merely a spot of leg-pulling they was indulging in, Yer Hona!

When we had really bad storms in the early 90s the guys with chain saws made a fortune in black money.

This morning here in Sydney the Qs at car-washes are unbelievably long. I suspect lots will go straight into pockets!!

Pretty wierd, hey?
