That might be Sydney, but Brisbane this afternoon wasn't much better.

Long live Godzilla and giant red dust storms!

... now excuse me while I try not to breathe...

Thankfully we didn't leave the windows wide open when we left this morning, but the one that we did... our whole kitchen floor was covered in a thin film of dust and I had to mop. The bucket was completely reddish brown.

And walking outside leaves the skin feeling dry and old. It even leaves the skin smelling a bit... dusty.

Yeuch...time to bathe in moisturizer?

Aiyah just send a meteor to destroy us all and save all efforts and resources trying to make the world suffer before ending the world lah. This way you'll have more resources to rebuild the world anew...

*gets bricked*

It's not the humidity that's making it feel dry. It's the dust particles - imagine your skin with a layer of fine dust... moisturiser will only make the dust stick to you more.

And sayang... pessimism doesn't become you. *pat pat*

My goodness... what the hell causes this massive discoloration?

It's a red dust storm that swept in from central Australia and western New South Wales, which has almost completely covered the state of New South Wales. Brisbane had the worst of it this afternoon, but fingers crossed it'll clear tomorrow.

While dust storms occur every year or so, it's been no worse than a mild haze similar to Singapore's one. Today's storm however, no one has seen the likes of since 70 years ago.

Uh huh... and apparently more to come this weekend, though it's not expected to be as bad as this.

SILENT HILL ON MARS!!! So cool, I might suggest this to Konami~~ XDD

But yeaaaaah, must be horrible breathing in red dust =@

Imagine a dry scratchy throat with every breath you take, a soft red hue over everything (esp cars) and having a desperate need to vaccum and mop everything.

Yuck! That's a lot of dust! So much you can see it from space! (http://www.osei.noaa.gov/Events/Dust/Australia/2009/DSTaustralia266_N9.jpg)

Holy crap! Didn't realise the dust storm is visible from space.

Stupid dust...

Arnold: "Get yer ahss to marzzz!"

I saw video on the news today and I immediately thought about you. Glad you're okay. I mean that much dust has to be murder on the lungs. O_o
25th-Sep-2009 02:55 am (UTC)
The solution: don't breathe. XD
24th-Sep-2009 03:34 am (UTC)
I saw this on the news earlier. Scary. Hope it doesn't effect your health. *hug*
25th-Sep-2009 02:55 am (UTC)
Nah, I'll be fine. It's the people with respiratory health issues and asthma who have to exercise lots of caution when going outside now.

I heard about the duststorm of epic proportions, but I had no idea just how epic it was. o_o

(Godzilla made me lol in the school library. XD)
25th-Sep-2009 02:58 am (UTC)
Lots of photos have been circulating of the affected cities, so they prove the epicness of the event.

And yes, I had to choke down a laugh at work when I saw Godzilla too.
25th-Sep-2009 05:29 am (UTC)
All the news reports that I've made Australia seem like apocalypse gorund zero. XD
25th-Sep-2009 09:32 am (UTC)
I...don't know why, but I'm totally jealous of your surreal all-covering dust! D:
28th-Sep-2009 03:15 am (UTC)
As pretty as it looks, it's not good to keep having to breathe in the stuff. DX
27th-Sep-2009 05:12 am (UTC)
I'm sad Godzilla didn't visit my part of the city.. haha
28th-Sep-2009 03:16 am (UTC)
Hehehehehe... lucky for you, since this dust storm is HORRIBLE to cycle in.
