We have experienced a phenomenon.
(Whenever I say phenomenon I feel like singing manamana)
Anyway we have had a red red rain. A rare red rain. Yesterday there was some freakish weather event. Apparently there was a huge dust storm miles and miles away and all this dust was swept up into the atmosphere. Then a trough carried the dust to us and attached itself to rain. Then at about 3.30pm the rain came down and now the town is covered in red scum. Funny driving around town, it looks as if all us townsfolk have been out thrashing our cars in the mud. Not to mention the houses. They'll all need a good hosing down. That's if we were allowed to use hoses. Water restrictions though. No watering. Actually I wonder if the council will give us an hour one day to do that.
I took this photo of the car today. You get a bit of an idea – but it's hard to get the full effect.
