First dust storm of the season.

Not only do we have to endure 40 degree days, now to top it off a dust storm.

Trees bending over with the wind.

Can hardly see the paddocks across the road.

ewww.
And Summer is still ten days away.

  1. Oh Yuk, dust and wind wonderful combination!! NOT! We have just been hot here, it was 27 at 6.30 this morning, hot and humid until about 40 mins ago. Slight cool change now, the temp dropped from 37 to 26, no rain though - bugger!!
    Hope the weekend is better

  4. It seems to have a bit of a smell to it as well. It was not that pleasant in Albury yesterday. Thankfully I got a cable on my airconditioner fixed that they took off when fixing the motor, we didn't know of course. At least it was pleasant on the way home.

    The dust is still here, came in the night I think. I first heard about the dust storm on the blog Out Back.

  9. We have the rain now and the cool change although I still feel dusty. We had the same terrible duststorm blow through here too and I was madly rushing around closing windows so the house didnt get covered. Im a bit scared to see what blows out of the air con later on, hopefully no dust! I hope the cool weather stays for quite a while now, the heat is so sickening!

  10. Quite a dust storm according to the pictures. I have never experienced one myself but can imagine that I'd hate them.

  14. And it was during this delightful storm, in the 40's, that our classrooms lost power for a few hours! So we had to swelter inside, unable to open windows or doors for fear of being swirled into a dusty oblivion! Ahhh these are the days I remember as a child, they were so much more frequent then :) Great capturing of the intensity of it!
