Sydney, lookin red

Well if this isn’t a vision of the future come to life, I don’t know what is. Obviously, the dust is a result of the years (10?) of drought that Australia is experiencing, which may-or-may-not (tongue firmly in cheek) be climate change in action.

People in Sydney awoke today to discover the sky was turned a hellish red in the extremely rare weather event.

Ferries have been cancelled and flights to Sydney airport have been diverted as visibility has been severely reduced.
