(Linda stowed the computers in the garage.)
I was in Sydney over the weekend. My house was not in the path of the bushfires. When I got back on Sunday the atmosphere was smoky, there was ash everywhere, many shops were closed, the water restrictions had been updated and Linda needed a hug. Elsewhere four people died and hundreds of homes were destroyed. Denise's father-in-law's neighbour died.
When I got home Emily said meow and went to sleep on the couch. She has the brain of a cat.
Today smoke has suffused the air, the sunlight is jaundiced and visibility is limited. Staff have been disappearing home all day. Everyone asks "How are you? Where do you live?" and nobody gets annoyed at being asked a hundred times. People are concerned, nobody is being ghoulish, they prefer to hear "I was in Sydney and my house was in no danger." It was after lunchtime before I heard about the looting, arson and car washing.
