Dust storm

This is the view that greeted us as we got up this morning:

A dust storm had blown in red sand from Central Australia. The weather was perfectly calm (we were in the eye of the storm) and the sky blood red. As I drove the kids to school the wind picked up and the rest of the storm started blowing the dust away again. Sydney looks nearly normal again. It was eerily beautiful.

Our house in the sand.

View across the street towards Pat's house - which is bright white!

Saw pics on the news. How surreal!! Thanks for sharing your great shots! But I hope things are back to normal tomorrow - as gorgeous as it looks, it can't be good for air quality!

Wow that's beautiful. Does that happen often?
What time of day was it?

Wat voor fantastische beelden. Ik denk, dat dit de eerste keer is, dat zoiets gebeurd, zeker sinds jullie in Australiƫ wonen. De natuur is toch echt iets geweldigs.
