The sky is falling….in Melbourne

October 27, 2008 — 7 Comments

No, not the dollar dropping to 60c, or the auction rate below 50%. No, red dust. Lots of it.

The Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, least Camberwell, Canterbury and Hawthorn, have woken up to find everything covered in red dust. On my car is looks like rain…and it’s a little sticky as well

Not sure if it’s coming from this fire at the Westgate Bridge. If it is, I wonder if it’s toxic or not? what I do know is that there’s a ton of it everywhere.

On a bright note, car wash outlets will have a record week in sales 🙂

  1. …that's kinda weird… I'm over in Surrey Hills and not noticed anything like that.

  2. Probably just more Mallee topsoil. 🙁

  3. that happens when we get northerly winds (blows in from the dessert) and then rain. You'll see more over the summer. Few years back we had a massive sand storm too which was a joy to behold.

  4. That is strange, indeed. Is that just sand from the winds that Darren speaks of?

  5. Hardly call hawthorn or Camberwell “eastern Suburbs”!!! There more inner then eastern especially when you consider that Noble Park/Dandenong are now the geographical center of Melbourne (as I understand it). That would actually make them Western Suburbs!
