- In the Bush (Peak Hill, NSW)
It does look scary to a newcomer, doesn't it, and it does get quite dark, which confuses the animals, but the thing that pisses us off is the no notice - apart from neighbours cooeeeing over the back fence. Then, it's a mad panic, running around closing all the windows and doors...
The next day is clean up which starts from the ceilings down, and everything gets dusted - and I do mean everything due to the ionic properties of the friggin' dust (it adheres to everything). I have an industrial wet and dry vacuum and I'm very tempted to reverse the thing and start the thing blowing from the back door of the house, and continue to the front door...The trouble there is that the superfine dust is then suspended within the house, which means dust descends for three days or so on everything.
As it is, we need to clean up again the next day due to that suspended dust in the air.
At least It's usually cooler after a big blow - at the moment, 09:36, it is a balmy 25C, or 77F, which is what I set the aircon at so I'm actually wearing a shirt! BLISS!
