  • This is NOT good weather!

    This morning, after a horror night of 72km/hr winds I woke up to a thick layer of dust covering everything inside and out and a bizarre orange sky. (I honestly thought I was going to be doing a Dorothy impression all of my own! Sometimes its not good to have a house 12 feet off the ground!)

    I believe that this is what they experienced out in Broken Hill yesterday...

    Its still blowing a howling gale here this morning...

    Anyone else dusty?  ;D

    Yeah Scoots, the dust has made its way through Sydney, the Central Coast and Newcastle from what Im reading on my twitter feed

    Woke up to a very eerie orange light.

      Yep, definitely very orange here as well - visibility is down to about 200m or so.

      About to go and drop the kidlets off at school / Care (I have the day off today - yay!) but will probably have to wash my car off beforehand, I suspect.

        Yes, theres a layer of dust on everything!

        I just went outside to feed some animals and I see that my outdoor movie screen is no longer white but RED!

        Now Im hoping for more rain to wash this all away!

          that vid scoota linked is crazy, to start with i thought meh its jut as orange here...... but then..... thats crazy !!

          reckon it would be freaky to sit there and watch that roll in

          "end of the world feeling"

          i hate the dust under my feet on the timber floorboards.... days of vacuuming i reckon to come... its cleared a bit here in Mosman compared to 7am, needs to rain but :

            Still thick as ever here in Newcastle 8-). Makes for an interesting start to the day.
            Wouldnt mind having the black out, could be fun... Apart from the cleanup afterwards.

              bah, i had this all day yesterday in Canberra, then the car got washed off on the way home in a nasty thunderstorm, only for me to wake up this morning to an even WORSE dust storm in Sydney and MORE dust on my car.

              At least theres no Zombies.

                I heard it was coming on the way home last night and was expecting to batten down the hatches after karate.
                But when I got home Id found that some wild winds had already hit and blown the TV off the table on the verandah.

                Im not down to 3 though as it still works (though it is a bit worse for wear).

                Please gather up the dust and post it back to South Australia.

                      I dont know what the fuss is about. With so many people in Sydney not having ventured further west than the Great Divide to see the country, this presents a great experience: the countryside has come to them! 8-)

                        I can foresee a new Roland Emerich / Dean Devlin film in the making........
