I've never seen anything like this...


Sydney has been enveloped by an incredible dust storm.

It's amazing. Eerie.  Disturbing.

I'm just so surprised that people were still out exercising in this; even inside our air-conditioned office the dust is present.

The sad thing is too, that this is precious top soil from west of the Blue Mountains, an area that is still very much in drought.  Another blow for the already struggling farmers.

This is really like pictures from Mars. Oh dear, this is not good, yes, poor farmers! It must be so unpleasant and even dangerous for those with respiratory problems. And the mess everywhere. It may be exciting for those who do not live there but nothing like that for you, is it?

There will be much cleaning up to do. Everything, inside and out, has a fine layer of dust on it, and there has been considerable damage from the gale force winds that created the dust storm.
