Sept 23, 2009: Red Sydney
Sydney Australia, has been enveloped in red dust...
ZenGum Wednesday Sep 23 01:32 AM
Holy moly. I reckon that second pic was taken with a filter - I've never seen a dust cloud anything like that shade of red, and I've seen plenty of dust.
Pearcie (AUS) Wednesday Sep 23 03:25 AM
Nah, no filter, it's for real. I woke up this morning and my whole appartment was bright yellow. (I don't get up til 8am) but anyone up around the 4am mark was treated to a blood red sky.

Brisbane is not much better. There's a front coming across from the desert and it's dropping 16000 tons of dust per hour on Brisbane. There's been a haze across the whole city since about midday today.

How's the saying go? Red sky at night sailors delight, red sky in morning sailors take warning? Red sky all the time....sailors begin to whine?

My mate just washed his car yesterday too

We had orange air in Canberra too. And today the water coming out of the tap is pale orange.
ZenGum Wednesday Sep 23 09:58 PM
I sit corrected. Seems that colour WAS real; I think the dawn light contributed to the intensity of it.

Fuck. Now the koala's are gonna be begging water *and* goggles.

How are you guys enjoying Mars Life?
Leah Sunday Sep 27 07:22 PM
It was horrible, I woke at 5:10am and Michael (partner) freaked out as he looked out side. I'm still dusting to get rid of the red dust. We had a white dust storm hit on Saturday, not as bad as the red dust. Gotta love those country folks and all their soil.
xoxoxoBruce Sunday Sep 27 11:33 PM
That stuff must be a bitch to clean up. Is it sandy/gritty or more like dirt/soil?
Leah Monday Sep 28 12:02 AM
it is a bitch to clean. when you add water it turns to mud, not fun at all. It's really fine dust but a shit load of it. I'm going to hire a cleaning lady, but I'm sure they have all quit their jobs by now.
xoxoxoBruce Monday Sep 28 12:05 AM
They probably all decided to take their vacation (holiday) now.
Leah Monday Sep 28 12:16 AM
Don't worry, I can wait, and so can all my dust. I'm anoyed cause I only really dust once a year and I only did it last week (Tues), now I have to do it all again. Bugger.
xoxoxoBruce Monday Sep 28 12:23 AM
Put a feather duster on the dog's tail, and dangle some treats.
Leah Monday Sep 28 12:26 AM
Bugger, now I have to buy a dog. Good idea Bruce.
xoxoxoBruce Monday Sep 28 12:31 AM
Here ya go.
Leah Monday Sep 28 12:39 AM
You are funny Bruce, good idea. Alex will probably on do the lounge room cause he can't see the TV from any other room. Hang on hang on, I have a portable DVD player I can use. This may just work. is this classified as child abuse????
xoxoxoBruce Monday Sep 28 12:41 AM
Of course it is, but parents have been doing it forever... consider it tradition.
Leah Monday Sep 28 12:43 AM
Tradition, I love tradition. Consider it done. I won't tell anyone about it, it's our little secret, oh and Alex.

My Dad always says he only had kids so we could get beer for him. It made me feel good to have a purpose in my little life. Now I need a son of my own to get ME beers and continue the legacy
Leah Monday Sep 28 01:05 AM
I know what you mean. Alex is ever so close to opening a bottle of wine for me. The champagne will take a little longer to show him and for him to master not spilling it all.

I'd start looking at New Zealand's immigration rules.

Good thing I don't live there. I wouldn't have been able to go outside for that day and one or two after!

Why would you take your lungs and car into that? I don't get it.

... at 100kph ... while discussing how other cars around them were pulling over or turning around.
