Hellfire Penisula NSW style!

Woke up to some pretty crazy skies this morning. Thought there was a fire or something but after watching the news was informed of an epic dust cloud:

Its pretty much all cleared up by now, just alot of orange dust around. Its a strange sight, you would expect somewhere like Alice Springs or somewhere closer to the center to look like this, not a coastal area far away from any kind of desert area.

How does... how does that even work?

Do they cut a tiny hole in the mask and squeeze the ciggie in there or something?

Cheers Alley, figured as much.

I love how he hasn't been able to ash, so they're just dangling there.

At least now all the 4WDs you see parked outside North Shore homes will have that authentic look about them.

That's awesome and oh so hot.
