The Answer: Dust Devil

15 Aug

A willy willy is a dust devil. According to Wikipedia “in Aboriginal myths, willy willies represent spirit forms. They are often quite scary spirits, and parents may warn their children that if they misbehave, a spirit will emerge from the spinning vortex of dirt and chastise them.”
