Australia dust storm

And the sky turned black….

From Dave Riley in Australia (on Facebook)

Blogger ponders the Apocalypse If you live in Sydney or Brisbane — today you are in a dust storm.The outback has come to town in trillions of bits and pieces. Here in suburban Brisbane the sky turned red a half hour ago and I’m sitting in a orange haze . I can feel the grit under the mouse and my glasses are veiled with dust. This is sub tropical Brisbane — not the tinder drying south during the height of Summer. And it is only September! So you have to go listen to Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads to get the social measure of these storms.

As for the meteorological significance of such a storm as this — the onward rush of Climate Change is really beginning to look like a Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse type scenario. I’ll see you in Hell…just outside my door


  1. Astounding imagery. Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me.

  2. That video was amazing! What the heck is it? Why is it orange?

    It really does look like the Apocalypse.
