after the dust has settled

(redirected from after the dust settles)

after the dust has settled

When things have become more calm or stable; when the consequences (of something) have become known or manageable. I know things have been really hectic during this project, so let's all take a bit of a break and return to it after the dust settles a bit. Lots of people opposed the gay marriage legislation, but after the dust has settled, I hope they'll see that there was no reason to be afraid of it.
