By dinner time last night, all the topsoil from the farms in western Victoria coated every surface in my house. O.o *worries how farmers are going to grow anything* I spent the evening and this morning dusting. Anyone who knows me would be aware how unusual that was, but I had to - there was a layer of black grit over everything.
As far as trauma goes, we got off so easy! Nevertheless, some folks are whining, saying the text message warning we got was over the top and unnecessarily alarmed people. But I think it was brilliant and am tremendously grateful for it!
