A Dust Storm?

Apparently there was a dust storm in Sydney yesterday.  The dust storm was mostly in the early morning, and later on it was just windy, so I missed most of it.  All I knew until I saw the pictures later was that the sky was a bit of a funny colour (which was also true last week when they were burning undergrowth near where I live) and that my hayfever was going crazy (which was also true last week when...)

Apparently the sky was bright orange.  I missed it all.  I can see the stuff on my floor now, though.  I wiped some of it up with a tissue and it is a distinct salmon colour, rather than the usual grey of household dust.  I'll have to mop and vacuum the place - but maybe not just yet, because it's expected to return this weekend.

1 I guess you missed the excitement, then. (Scroll to the bottom.)

2 Fortunately, he was just visiting.  He got his picture taken holding a koala and went home happy.

3 Sexist! Why do you assume it was a "he"? (Man, some people...)
