Under an orange sun.

Terrigal Beach,NSW Monday 21st October 6.00am.A fitness class working out against the background of a thick orange/brown smoke haze out to sea.I am not sure whether this particular smoke is from the massive bushfires in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney or from the large fire at Lake Munmorah north of Terrigal.The haze blanketed Sydney yesterday causing extreme conditions for asthmatics although the weather was thankfully cooller and there was little wind so firefighting made some progress but catastrophic conditions-extreme heat and high winds are forecast for Wednesday which will be very challenging.Already over 200 homes have been lost and we are only a few weeks into summer.We desperately need rain-lots of rain.
