    i'm just wondering, who would think it's a good idea to go for a jog on the beach in such a weather?

    It did'nt last too long. Not here in Brisbane, atleast.
    I could'nt even see across the street. It was definitely an interesting thing to see.
    Also, I'd had no warning of it, so I just woke up and it looked like I was on Mars or something.

    Also, I did have to leave the house to talk a walk. Did'nt really notice it being any harder to breath, just windy and fuck.

    It was worse down here in New South Wales, hung around for pretty much most of the day. It was such a fine grain of dust that it made its way into the house even though I'd shut all the windows. probably through vents I guess.

    When I woke up yesterday there was about 10m visibility at best, everything looked so surreal, add to that it was gale force winds too. Was expecting the Brotherhood of Steel to come out of the dust heh heh heh

    but today, blue skies and a whole lot of dusty vehicles on the roads :p
