Another 'interesting' day.
Isn't that the Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times"?
With no rain greater than 1mm since mid December and the country side dried by a procession of high temperature days, fire danger is extreme. The last burst of over 40°C days was still. Today will be windy.
Here's hoping that it all passes safely.
Brown and crunchy is depressing, but it is better than black and dead.
