A windy, orange kind of day

The view from our back door, at 7am this morning.
Sydneysiders awoke to a bright orange
sunrise this morning.
Surreal.
A massive, dust storm has blown in.
At 9am, I hosed my car off,
foolish, just made the red dust stick harder.
What do I know about dust settling?
I'm a city girl!

reminded me of when I was 15 and waiting for the bus home after school - the whole sky was red like this, a massive dust storm. It's really windy up here and as I was walking home, I noticed lots of things on the pavement and stopped. They were snails - all blown off the grass and rolling around on the footpath - the whole way home! weird!! shame the girls weren't with me..
