Here's a bit of a postscript to the previous entry.
Earlier in the day, the signs were there. The queuing at the water bowls was a good measure of what was to come.
The humidity was extremely low and it was obvious then, the fire index was skyrocketing.
I decided to add some supplementary water bowls and pretty soon these were occupied too.
Halfway through the afternoon, the sun began to disappear - time to put the camera away and get busy.
This morning, the sky is still very smoky. The cool southerly wind is pushing smoke from the Churchill fire over us. Just a gentle reminder that it's not all over, particularly for other poor individuals.
The golf course came through last night's wind storm very well. I'm amazed that there are no large trees or limbs down. Plenty of debris on the greens to make putting a bit tricky.
The black bits in the above picture are scorched leaves from probably several of the fires.
Gotta go. Haven't checked the news sites for a while. Better check local radio too, to see how they are getting on down Churchill way.
