The thing is it is not rain, it is what we call in the ol country cat hair. It is non stop drizzle.

It is snuggle in the covers with a cuppa hot chai weather, not Friday original writing with Monday deadline kind of weather.

Hairy rain…worst kind of rain. Blows all over the damn place.

Looks like a fire. Any update or news?

It’s a fire and the pollution level is likely to decrease tonight, though it won’t be good like before Tuesday (excl. KH) as the wind will bring pollutants from China.
