The Sweet Smell of ..... Dust?

Watching the news Wendesday morning was almost like watching a sci-fi movie ... all that red dust. We didn't have the eerie red but the dust made it here too ... (about half way up the Queensland coast).

We were driving home from town and could see it approaching. Just got home in time to grab some clothes off the line and shut all the doors and windows ... but it still got in.

This is the view across to the cattle yards from our verandah ... same time yesterday and today.

Here is the view to the South ... yesterday and again today around the same time.
