"There is no place like home"

Well I woke yesterday morning, not quite sure if I had woke on Mars or whether I had been thrown straight into the Wizard of Oz. "Toto, where are you". I made sure I wore my bright red sparkly shoes all day so I could click my heels together and say "There is no place like home". No just kidding!!! Though wasn't that red dust storm just terrible.....

I have spent all day, apart from doing the bookwork, cleaning, dusting, washing cars, hosing the whole house down, gardens, garage, etc. My kids had the day off school, as I just wasn't going to tempt fate and have them come home full of sinus, allergies or asthma.... So we just veged out all day inside, watching movies and playing XBox with all the doors loaded up with towels so the dust wouldn't get underneath. Here I thought I was being so smart, but no that red dust just came right on in, through our tiled roof and down through our downlights. You couldn't pay me enough to live out in the outback. Yuk!!!

Here is a pic I took yesterday of the dust storm, then again this morning just to show the difference. This old shed is in the 200 acres behind us... Looks very rustic in the red dust don't you think...

Jeez Lis, you got some great photographs to capture that damn dust storm you experienced up there. Hope the housework didn't take too long afterwards!
