September 09 Dust Storm

This is what I woke up to today. This was taken at 8.15am - just bizarre! I can't remember the last time I experienced a dust storm. Living on the coast we don't often get these dust storms, they're usually more inland Australia. It was the weirdest orange and very windy. I hunkered down all day inside trying to stop the dust coming in the house.

I woke this morning at 7.30am looking out the window thinking - that is strange, unusal colour to the sun today - bit like waking up on mars.. i didnt realize it was a dust storm - till i spoke to my hubby - thought it was another bad fire somewhere in the hunter.. (close)
lots of work tomorrow (hopefully no more dust storms) cleaning all kids toys outside, house, cars, sunroom etc etc
apparently the worse in 70 years - i wonder if anyone older enough would remember the last one??

All the lights that went a weird blue tint early in the morning, that was freaky too! I was too scared to take my camera outside!
