Red Dawn

This morning, I woke up and noticed a bright orange tinge around our window. So, I checked my daughter's room. Same thing. Walked into the living room. Yep, there too. I made my way to the sliding door and looked outside. Yikes! It was bright orange outside. Seriously, like something out of a post-apocalyptic story. Or maybe Mars.

Anyway, I grabbed the camera and took this photo:

I actually took it from behind the sliding glass door, so if I was outside on the balcony, it probably would've looked a little sharper. But man, it could've been some sort of zombie dust out there for all I knew. So I thought it was best to stay indoors. :/
The weirdest thing is that last night I finished reading Z FOR ZACHARIAH, so it was really strange to wake up to a morning that resembled a post-war atmosphere. Lol.
Anyway, there are a lot of other freaky pics of Sydney HERE, if you'd like to check them out.
The red/orange tinge is gone but it's still ugly. It was a little uncomfortable breathing out there. And for someone who's got that whole breathing-prob thingy, it hurt a little when we went out to drop my daughter off at school and do the grocery shopping. Hope it's better by the time I need to go out again.
Well, yesterday ended up being very productive. I got the Sci-Fi synopsis revised. I also changed a few plot notes for story #3. While hubby and I were lifting weights last night, I grabbed some paper and a pen and got jotting. I just wanted to write the beginning of the story, plus a few things that popped into my head. I ended up with a dozen scribbled pages of stuff. In sequence. The only thing I didn't get to is the end. It's awesome when that happens.
Bad thing is that my muse is now itching to get started, especially since the hero's going to be based on Jason Statham. Yeah. I had the really hard task of looking up Jason pics the other day. Such a hard job. ;)
Anyway, that's how I'm going to sign off today:

Scary. Lass, you need to be here in VIC! No duststorm here; you'll be safe ;-)

Things'll get scary here once bushfire season starts, though...
