Red Dust Storm In New South Wales, Australia

I live in the state of Victoria just below the State of New South Wales, so we were lucky not to receive a hares breath of this. I've included some amazing pictures of it for you to see. Thanks to my readers who were concerned for me, knowing that I live in Australia!

I have never seen anything quite like this. It's so scary looking. I hope everyone is okay.

Glad to hear you and your family are alright! Like I said, my first thought was you when I heard it on the news! It looked like something out of a movie! So weird! I don't think Rev would look good in red! hahaha Crochet Hugs! Beth

That is just phenomenal. It is beautiful from a distance, but hard to breath in it, I'm sure.
Wear a mask!!

Hey thanks all, glad I was not there either. The photo's were emailed to me. Rev would have been Red, lol.
I'm not crocheting much at all, I've lost the urge. But i'm hoping it will come back with a blast!!!!!
Thank you all for caring.

Looks like a West Texas (where I'm from) red dirt storm. They roll in very silent and still, or blow in violently in the panhandle of the Great Plains in the spring. What an incredible site. These pics bring back memories of that for me thanks!! I wanted to let you know that I have made many, many pairs of the crochet wrist warmers you shared on your site. My grand-daughter wore them to school and now ALL of her friends want them (I crochet and she gives as gifts). They are so nice I wanted to thank you for the pattern. The young ladies are thrilled when they get them. I use a crochet hat pattern to match from angryolive.livejournal that is an excellent match. Really lovely set. I especially like to use the satin sport 4 ply for them. Have a wonderful holiday season and thanks again...chyrl
