Off topic: The day Australia turned into Mars

The dust storm hit Sydney and Brisbane on the east coast of Australia a few days ago, visibility where I was (Brisbane and Gold Coast) down to about 150 metres, everything, I mean everything covered in fine red dust. It has since become known as The Big Red. Last night another dust storm passed through both cities but weaker. It was something very surreal to witness.

Reminds me of the dust storm I experienced in Namibia. It was quite cool! It came and went very quickly. Not such a menace as these storms appear to be on these videos.

We even got the Oz dust here in Auckland. Our cars were covered in it despite it raining on Thursday night.
