Wind is blowing it right past us. Close but not getting closer. Ready to move as soon as police say so. Nowhere to go though. We are in the bottom SW corner and the roads east and north are both closed. Too old to worry too much.

That was close. No power or internet but everything else OK (4G working). Thanks to 500 poorly rewarded firemen. Still smells of smoke and a layer of ash everywhere. Need to check if the roads are open. There will definitely be some homes gone nearby.

Thanks guys. It's still smoking but there are firemen out there on guard. These guys are brilliant. In Portugal the men are volunteers and whenever they are called out to a major fire the public buy food and water for them from the supermarkets. They even need stuff like socks. Larger charities and fund raisers buy most of their kit. It's twelve months exactly from Western Europe's worst fire, which was NE of Lisbon. At that time people lost their lives in their homes and in their cars. This one was without fatalities but several homes lost nearby. We are now collecting and donating where needed. The fire started six miles away and ended this morning less than 3/4 mile from our house. Wind is still quite strong, let's hope it doesn't start up again.

Fires starting up again. Not quite as close as last night but the wind keeps whipping it up. Here's a pic of afternoon sun on the the beach. There's not enough water in the reservoirs to keep this up. Could be another late night. Guess what.... nobody's talking about Coronavirus any more.
