WHAT are dust storms good for? In the past week the eastern Riverina has experienced a couple of these storms.
Minimal amounts of rain falls and the red dust is lifted from the ground and colours the skies.
Unfortunately the storms are part of the drought conditions currently being experienced throughout Australia.
Although if there had to be something "good" about these storms they have the ability to unite people.
The photos of the dust storms recently have been nothing short of fantastic. And if social media is to be a gauge people are keen to share their clever photography.
IF you have been to Morven or live in the community chances are you would have met Diesel.
Eastern Riverina Chronicle photographer Lorri Roden attended a special "farewell" to Diesel last week. After

So far the Junee Shire Farm Watch page has more than 600 likes.
