Seasonal Friday....

Can you believe it's been a year already since we had that massive dust storm?
The dust storm on 23 September 2009 was caused by extremely strong winds over South Australia and inland NSW after a long period of drought. The winds lifted the dust and soil from the dry ground and whipped them thousands of kilometres through the air, to Sydney and then to Brisbane.
It’s been estimated that, when the storm was at its strongest, about 16,000 tonnes of dirt were dropped on SE Queensland every hour. That’s a lot of dirt!
Makes me appreciate the cleansing rains we've had all week.
