Martian Skies



We woke this morning to red dust over the town and blanketing everything. I smelt it before I opened my eyes. My silver car is now red. The news says the air pollution levels went to 1500 times their normal levels - the highest on record. Over half the state is covered. This is not so unusual for the west of the state but the dust rarely reaches the coast in this way.
The usual arguments about whether it is a result of climate change or just a rare occurrence.
I plan to have all my windows washed before putting the house on the market. I would have been very annoyed if they had been washed last week.
The skies are blue again but the winds are still very strong. We had a big storm last night, I would quite like another one to wash everything including the car.

I was going to take a photo from my window but it would just look like a fairly common foggy morning so I have taken some of the two Sydney icons  from the Sydney Morning Herald website.

This is a sign from the Almighty that He disapproves of Jensenism.

This made the news here last evening. It looks quite eerie, nevermind the potential health risks. Glad it's over.
