Dust Settles... What's Left?

I'm not sure if this news is worthy enough to be broadcast overseas. Everyone in Australia though is quite aware of the freak weather which started yesterday morning. Now I live near Wollongong in New South Wales. Here it started off as a relatively normal morning. On my way home in the late morning this wind came out of no where and I mean proper wind, the train station was shaking and creaking because of it. Then when I was at home the temeprature rose to 30 degrees celsius. Which isn't too hot but is still uncomfortable. The afternoon saw huge black clouds arrive on the wind, which rumbled a little until nightfall. Late evening the thunderstorm starts, with some cool looking lightning. Then through the later night it simply tipped down with rain, while still being quite hot.

So if that's bad enough, this morning I woke up to an orange glow, everything was glowing orange. Couldn't understand it until mum explained and I looked outside. In the early hours of the morning the dust storm had come through. It looked really cool and I've never seen that happen before. It also gave way to something else...

This week is my second last week of school, ever. I have exams after but those don't count really, they're not classes. So I'm really excited, as I bloody hate school with a passion through many reasons. Anyway, this week I haven't attended many classes. Monday I went to half, Tuesday half and today I went to none.... because of the dust storm and not me for a change.

It was broadcast that if you have health problems you shouldn't go outside today. Myself, being diagnosed as a terrible sufferer of asthma, am stuck inside for the day. Which is fine by me, though a little boring. Supposedly some people risk the possibility of death by such problems coupled with over exposure. Sounds like a pretty cool, futuristic dystopic way if you ask me....

I'm enjoying that Revocation album I blogged about. I obtained it through a leak nine days before release. In fact I got the leak a couple hours after it went up, so I was one of the very first people to get it (or at least can be determined by Last.FM stalking at any rate). It's good so again I recommend it.

So that's it for now, some weird weather and a new album. Next week I'm sure you'll enjoy reading since I have my formal. I'll try and take a camera to take a load of photos.
