Oops

I looked out of the window and thought it was a strange time of the evening to have a fog bank so far inland. Silly me. So I followed the smoke:


 

 That'll be an oops then.

    1. The 'Oops' Lee was rather a reference to the person who caused the fire.

  5. Fire fail for sure. And a pretty public one, too. It would be visible for miles around, wouldn't it?

  7. A pile of packing cases were being burnt. The grass and heather caught fire too. The fence then caught fire........
    The fire brigade were phoned and arrived within minutes and put the fire out. Excellent service indeed.

  9. One can usually smell the bushfires here before we are blanketed in smoke. Any idea what your neighbour was burning?

  10. Fires are always a concern for me. Having lived through a bushfire.. the smell of smoke and that eerie haze in the sky ... I get too alarmed for my own good. Glad to read everything turned out OK.

    1. Lynda I cannot imagine what living through a bushfire must be like. Fire out of control is one of the worst of disasters.

  11. Glad no serious harm was done.
    Some folks here love to burn stuff as well, seems to be some fascination with flames and smoke and danger. I've written several posts about their folly on my blog.
