Red haze and dust storms in Sydney

Driving through red haze and heavy dusts

By this time, the news about the red haze which blanketed Sydney and surrounds yesterday would have reached everyone.

Quite true, yesterday’s phenomenon (yes, it is phenomenon) was unlike anything seen before. Walking out of our house yesterday morning to find out what was happening was a very eerie experience. Outside, the morning was painted red. The smell of dust was all over the place.

In my 30 years of stay in Australia, I have witnessed hailstorm with hails bigger the size of golf balls and destroying properties, but yesterday’s red haze was something very different and unusual.
