Under a blood red sky


Last night the other half and I rushed outside to see for the first time a very red sun setting in our sky. Rather strange and we wondered if it was anything to do with the fires in Australia - anyone else see it?

We are in the beginning of drought mode here - we were suppose to have rain this week but after 15 minutes that was it. People have been pre-ordering water and luckily we managed to book a delivery for next Monday. But in the South Island apparently in Queenstown they have had flooding from too much rain - go figure.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

  3. What a beautiful looking sky. I imagine people do a lot of water conservation in your area with the water being delivered. Hope you get some rain soon.

  5. Definitely the Aussie fires. Was looking at the rising sun this morning and the smoke haze.

  6. I've been out on the open road this morning and the smoke was giving the clouds an orange tinge. Any view into the distance was shrouded with blue haze. I'll have to watch for sunset tonight :)

  7. Agree with Susan, it is the fires. Spectacular but sad

  8. Satellite pictures on the news tonight showed that there is smoke haze far out into the Pacific. It's dreadful in Sydney right now and no end in sight.

  10. Yes, I think the red is coming over from Australia. Check out Wanaka if you want some water. The lake is starting to flood the downtown.

  13. A couple of summers ago there were terrible forest fires in the mountains around our home in Oregon and the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve ever seen there ... due to the smoke, so it was hard to just enjoy them. (But they sure were beautiful, as is yours).
