Sand storm in Sydney, Australia

Storm in sydney

It is a city that usually wakes to brilliant blue skies. But dawn broke with a dramatic difference in Sydney.
Pulling back their blinds, residents were greeted with an eerie reddish-orange cloud cloaking all around them.

The gale force winds - measuring in excess of 60mph - also fanned bush fires in the state.
By noon on Wednesday the storm, carrying an estimated 5 million tonnes of dust, had spread
to the southern part of Australia's tropical state of Queensland.

You can smile

There are many troubles that will burst like bubbles,
There are many shadows that will disappear;

When you learn to meet them, with a smile to greet them,
For a smile is better than a frown or tear.  

Tho' the world forsake you, joy will overtake you,
Hope will soon awake you, if you smile today;

Don't parade yur sorrow, wait until tomorrow,
For your joy and hope will drive the clouds away.  

When the clouds are raining, don't begin complaining,
What the earth is gaining should not make you sad;

Do not be a fretter, smiling is much better,
And a smile will help to make the whole world glad.  

You can smile when you can't say a word,
You can smile when you cannot be heard;

You can smile when it's cloudy or fair,
You can smile anytime, anywhere.
