The aftermath of a storm

I absolutely detest cleaning windows and was quite pleased when our city council/water board declared several years ago that we weren't allowed to clean them because we don't have enough water.

But after last Wednesday's storm I'm going to have to break the rule (theirs and mine) and clean my north facing windows. The extreme wind created a dust storm and then we had a few drops of rain. Result? Big dusty patches on the glass. Five days later some people still haven't had their power restored, so I shouldn't complain about not being able to see out my windows, but this is too bad to ignore. I can't even say that I'll just wait for the next rain to do the job for me because that just isn't happening. So, I'll be out there with the bucket when I could be doing something much more interesting. Like reading other blogs, for instance.

Glad I found you, boobook. I'm really enjoying your style.

We've probably got more in common than just the drought!

We got that "red rain" up here in Gippsland too, Boobook. First time I've seen it since I was a kid in Melbourne in the early forties, and the Mallee was being stripped.

Hello Boobook,
What a storm that was. I wrote about it to on our Geelong blog. We have to have the TV antenna fixed tomorrow as it must have shifted in the wind that day.
I do like your photos of seeds, plants, etc.
