eep, meep

First day of 2020 here

We woke up to eerie yellow skies this morning with smoke from the Australian bush fire being blown across the south island, and it's been getting darker all day. We have the lights on at midday and the unlit rooms are dark and gloomy. It feels like post-9pm twilight except for the colour.

This photo is from a local photographer. My phone camera compensated for the yellow light so I couldn't get a photo of my own. The moon was deep red last night.

Aussie bush fires turn our skies yellow and orange

It's now become more orange and the street lights are on. I hate to think what it's like over in Oz. Be safe, everyone!
