Firestorm. I headed into the city today and finally saw with my own eyes the large cloud of smoke obscuring the sky. You can even smell it on the wind. I keep having flashbacks to camping with my folks, except I know that the fire causing this isn’t nearly so nice and friendly. Fellow Sydney blogger Tracey lives near one of the areas in danger and she’s posted some photos at her site. You should check ’em out. It’s really weird to think of y’all on the other side of the world dealing with snowstorms and ice while we all sweat and worry about bushfires.
