It was pretty yuck here for a little while. Did anyone have any dramas?
I live in melb, but saw on the news footage of sydney covered in dust and the bright red/orange sky in the morning, crazy!
To anyone that was in it, was the morning really that red/orange standing in it as they showed on tv?
I'm not in Sydney, but the sky was red here for an hour or so. The whole house glowed red.
They showed it on our news here! It looked very spooky. Hope everyone was ok.
We got the dust here yesterday afternoon & I had to drive down to Brissie in it !! wasn't as red as it was in Sydney though
I'm nowhere near Australia, but I saw pictures of all that red dust! I hope everyone is okay.
Apparently it could be seen from space as well. Very freaky looking footage we saw on the news here.
No-one was injured, I don't think. Because there's been no rain where it all came from, the weather people are saying with the same winds it might happen again in the next few days. But my car has been washed now!
I can't believe people were out jogging and breathing in all that dust! Some aussies will just jog in anything or any weather.
It even managed to find it's way to us! Near Cairns. Not so thick, not so red. But tastes like you're driving along a dirt road with all the windows down. It got here yesterday and is still here today.
last time we had a bad dust storm in melbourne was in the 1983 before i was born
Well I don't remember a dust storm like that and we get to look forward to having another one tomorrow . Thank goodness we didn't clean the cars . Though the pool is looking pretty weird but don't want to clean it until after the next dust storm. It was pretty much like looking through the world in yellow/red glasses pretty strange. There has been some pretty good pictures on MSN and other websites absolutely amazing.
Well can't wait to see what tomorrow brings
Okay, I have just found my computer through all the dust!!! LOL - no seriously, it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen - scary and strange, but amazing. We are high on a hill which over looks Sydney and I could see nothing from our bedroom window but this very strange orange/red glow - it was almost spooky, there was not much wind and it was like everything had stopped. I could barely see my neighbours roof
My kids were amazed by it and so was I!
I live 2 hours north of Sydney and this was the view in our back yard. The kids came running in and said "Mum the sun has turned blue!" I kept my son home from school. The wind was pretty fierce up here too. My poor hubby is the facilities manager at a resort which has the longest swimming pool in Australia. He spent an entire day after the storm vacuuming and still didn't get if finished!
that's so unbelievable! it was all over the news here, too. it must have been insane and eerie to witness!
Eerie is the right word. The blue light coming from the sun made all the cars look like they had been dusted with blue luster dust!
