I dont always have the best nose for smell, so I figured I might have been a little loopy because I was tired.Then at 7am this morning my sister woke me up to this red-orange sky outside.Its due to dust from the Australian desert being carried east to Sydney by 90+kph winds.Its a fine dust and if you have to go outside today its a good idea to wear a mask.
