I don’t know if this made news elsewhere but Sydney was hit by a dust storm today. It wasn’t as drastic as the news channels made it out to be (seriously…they even had reporters in different areas reporting on how bad it was!!) To see more pix of today, check out this website.
I also don’t know how it’s related to climate change…can’t such things happen once a while???
But anyway, I woke up to an orange light coming through the blinds…and my first thought was “bushfires!!!” (because I do live close to the national park…)
But nope. Thankfully, it wasn’t bush fires. Rather, it was a dust storm.
And I managed to capture a couple of pictures from my balcony.
It was a bizarre experience. My car was orange a few minutes after it was on the road. And the drive to work was quite different — it sorta had a twilight zone feel to it.
It still was not as drastic as the media made it out to be.
But it was quite beautiful. Barring my allergic reaction to the dust…I spent my whole morning sneezing and sniffling…through my sessions with my clients as well!
Until next time,
