Aren’t we glad I’m in the U.S. for Red Sydney Day?

So the word from Sydney is that it looked like a scene from the Apocalypse today. A freaky sand storm covered the entire city with dust and the sky was an impenetrable red haze for miles. It was so bad that planes were halted, ferries stopped running, and bible-thumpers crawled out of their bomb shelters to proclaim it the end of the world.

So aren’t we all glad that this time, I’m States-side for yet another weird weather episode in Sydney? Better that I’m here for Red Sydney Day, I think. Between that and the frequently infrequent “unseasonably warm” days, I’m sure we don’t need yet another thing for me to gripe about.
