Dust - The Farmers Wife's Curse

Just thought I'd show you what happens when we get a dust storm out here and a few spots of rain to really ruin your day!

The first picture is our outdoor setting with a glass table and the second is one of the lounge room windows. The picture of Jack in the previous post at the back door also shows some of the dust.

As I said in my first post, the BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) promised that we'd get between 10 and 30mm of rain over last weekend. Well, we ended up with 1.5mm in the rain gauge!! How wrong could they have got it!

All it did was make a huge mess. In the local newspaper today, there was a picture of all the townies lined up at the car wash to get their vehicle cleaned!!

I'll have to crank up the pressure cleaner tomorrow and get the house cleaned up.
