A dusty day

I was going to the beach today. To catch a few rays, and Vitamin D, and to listen to the waves roll in. It's a windy and revolting day with the air thick with dust. Apparently there have been dust storms south of here and they even hit Brisbane, and we've had more than our fair share. I have so much trouble with my eyes normally and I got a new paraffin gel for them on Friday which has helped enormously, but the dust in the air is too much today.... I've had to put the a/c on in the bid to clear the air. The light is a funny yellow, chillingly reminiscent of the dust storms I lived through in Geelong during the Ash Wednesday Bush Fires all those years ago. The kids are out playing golf. I've not had a call so they must be doing fine. The wind has died down now, which means that the dust is just sitting there, thick, heavy and intrusive.

Hi Jenny, it is that bad down here as well. Visibility is terrible and trying to breath is awful. I'm trying to get over a cold so this isn't helping. My eyes won't stop watering now because I had to go out in it my car is covered in dust.

I saw on the news today all the dust swirling over Sydney! Awful for you all. I hope it settles down soon.
