Red Sky at Night

When warm Spring days end with the last rays of sunlight scattering off the atmosphere to paint a sunset as it did tonight, it makes it my favourite time of the day.  It reminded me of the folk lore:  red skies at morning a sailor’s warning, red skies at night a sailor’s delight.  

My next thoughts were of bush fires and the increased risks as another hot and windy summer approaches.  All states are now on bush fire alert, the season started 1 October, and predictions of economic costs of this summer’s fires are in the region of $43 million.  For now I will appreciate the sunset and enjoy simply being.

However, a good scout is always prepared and the only defence against bush fires that render us powerless.  In spite of where my thoughts ended, the sunset brought to a close a great four day weekend.
