Unfortunately there’s only one reason for this vivid sunset. On Saturday, the smoke from the New South Wales bushfires burning in the Blue Mountains and near Sydney created a thick haze over Yass Valley.
Our thoughts go to the families affected by these fires.
There are no fires in the local area though we had a terrible time of it earlier this year in January. We were lucky, some of our fellow locals not so.
They all do such incredible work.
A local café owner organised the donation and delivery of emergency grocery boxes to the families in that fire. For months after the fires also, local charities helped feed volunteer workers. BlazeAid volunteers helped the farmers rebuild stock fences.
People are so generous.
I’m grateful to the people who work to protect us. ♦
