Shocking fire

I was shocked when I looked out this morning and saw a major fire, with billowing black smoke in the distance.

Turns out that it was some abandoned/discarded PVC pipe at Graeme Hall that was burning. Residences and schools had to be evacuated from that area.
Fortunately, the wind was blowing the smoke in a south westerly direction so it did not bother me.
I think that we would have had about three fatalities in the last month due to fire.

Well I am back...

Today is a holiday in Barbados - National Heroes Day and there is a special celebration in Independence Square this afternoon from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m.

There will be an address by the Prime Minister and performances by the Police Band, RPB, John King and the list goes on.
