Allan Duncan sent this shot of Sydney. In Brisbane, the sun at 2:00pm was blue through the dust haze, and as it reflected on vehicle windscreens it was most eerie vignetted blue–purple. The Australian this morning has all the info re: parts & particles (micrograms per cubic meter) here.

So last night I got out our trusty apartment odorator (from c1840 below) in the hope of spreading millions of small perfume particles into our part of the world – and it worked, today is as clear as . . . the day before.

Also one of our trusted furniture restorers – Stuart Bywater sent this email just now with some good advice:

“Good Morning Dust Storm Survivors”… Today everything is covered in dust even inside the house, your furniture will have a thin film of dust over every horizontal surface. Please be careful when going to clean these surfaces ! They will scratch if not careful If you follow our CARE PROGRAMME, your furniture will look great again in minutes! CLEANING . . . When dusting and cleaning use a slightly damp cloth along the length of the grain; this will pick up the dust and not spread it. Then dry along the grain. Clean up spillages, especially alcohol ASAP Then apply a thin coat of wax or oil, we recommend Feed and Wax or Orange Oil. *These wonderful products and more, can be purchased from our shop; Lace and Bark, 18 Station Street, Nundah, Brisbane.
