I called and spoke to Sue as soon as we'd heard the BBC Breakfast news - the storm apparently came during the early hours of Wednesday and as you can imagine, caused absolute chaos although the kids still went to school ok but weren't allowed outside because of the choking dust.
Sue says its absolutely EVERYWHERE, this thin film of dust - and she can taste it too! YUK!
By the time I called it was 5.30pm Sydney time and the sky had cleared but Sue said it was unusually quite cold because the sun had been blotted out all day!!
Still, thankfully everyone seems to be safe........and well!
