I searched the index AS TO WHERE I'd let you all know about the effects some days the devistating fires in Australia are ALSO affecting us here in New Zealand some 2600 miles away. (4200 km )
We see on our evening TV news the horror our Australian brothers, sisters and the wildlife are facing each day and the tragic toll the fires are having on all aspects of life. The smoke drift I guess you call it is appearing
in our usual blue skies -orange. I took some photos. Even the Moon had an orange glow.

Donald,

Those are some strangely beautiful, tragic pictures.  So terribly sorry for you guys.

I can't beleive you just said that. Now I need to calm down with this tiny ad:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
