We awoke to a bizarre kind of orangey light streaming in through the bathroom window this morning. It was very strange and we couldn't figure it out at first, but then we began to realise that the air was thick with smoke - again!
It was when we went outside however that we began to realise how bad things were. The garden looked like it had been sprinkled with snow but in actual fact it was all covered with ash.
The sun was shining red through the smoke as it rose over the Hottentots Holland mountains as the fire was on the slopes just above Sir Lowry's Pass village. This evening the fire is still raging and it doesn't look like the fire crews are having much joy in their fight against it. Rain has been forecast for tomorrow night so hopefully that might put it out if the firefighters don't manage it.
