I woke up on Mars this morning.

Wednesday 23rd September 2009, strong gale force winds over night bring in a massive blanket of dirt/dust to cover Sydney.

It looked like the end of the world outside this morning, the apocalypse.

Earlier this morning the sky was an evil red colour, as the sun rose it changed to an eerie orange, which is washing out in colour as the sun continues to rise and struggles to penetrate a thick dusty fog. I’ve never seen anything like it. Probably a typical morning on Mars.

From the bus on the way to work this morning, I saw people walking around wearing surgical masks, dust masks, and bandanas over their nose/mouths. It’s certainly more difficult to breathe outside, with that distinct smell of dust/dirt. Everything is just covered with a layer of rusty red/orange grit, being blown around by strong winds.
