My dad called me this afternoon. That was a little unusual as we usually speak in the mornings. He had called to tell me that it was pitch black – at 3.30 in the afternoon! He said in his 50 years of living in Broken Hill, he has never seen a dust storm as bad as the ones that it there today.

Of course, people have already uploaded their videos to youtube…check out these videos of today’s dust storms. Freaky! I do not envy the cleanup…red dust would be everywhere and in everything.

Why is this of interest to me? Because I’m a Hill gal- born and bred!
