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.

Amazing pictures. It's unfortunate that it bodes ill for the farmers who are already hard hit.

Truly, I marvel at people who live on the land; drought, bushfire, locust, collapsing export commodity prices, now this wind, some regions have had it all this year.
