It's Australia's fault!

It's been raining for several days now and our pond is full to overflowing. But when I looked at the pond today, it looked a bit strange. It was slightly murky. Just slightly. But thoroughly murky. That never happened before, as far as I can remember.

Come to find out, New Zealanders all over are having the same problem with ponds and pools. It looks like the Australian dust storm made it across the Tasman and has settled in New Zealand.

Strangest thing I have ever seen!

That's not good....will you then have to fight with algae later?

I'm not sure, Anni. We keep a bale of barley hay in the pond to keep the algae under control, so we will have to wait and see if the dust makes a difference.
