The plan was to drive to Toowoomba to see the flowers with Elaine so we packed a picnic and were all ready to go when we looked out the window and saw the dust approaching from the west.
We went out the front to take a look and it was just as bad.
So we abandoned the plan to go to Toowoomba for the day.
Just as well. This is what quickly developed.
These local residents didn't seem to mind.
.... but the rest of us spent the day inside.
