Life on Mars
Woke up at 6.45am today wondering what the strange orange glow in our bedroom was. Looked outside and wondered if armageddon had come overnight. This was our Martian landscape this morning - and still like that now at 10.30am here.
A huge dust storm is passing up the east coast of Australia, bringing with it red dust all the way from the Northern Territory and South Australia (thousands of miles away). Ferries are cancelled, I'm working from home as didn't want to get my hair all dusty on the walk in to my office, the air is heavy with dust and even inside my eyes are tickling. Quite surreal.
