The eerie atmosphere of a bushfire

Time for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday

I am sorry for bombarding you with fire stuff but it’s my life at the moment.

I was in town when the atmosphere turned a different shade than I am used to seeing which gave my world an eerie glow.

When the City near my place, Grafton, was first settled there was an abundance of sandstone. Important buildings were built using sandstone. This building was one of the first banks in the city.
