Brightened up a little here, and now can definitely smell the burning. Almost total cloud cover still, but the red sun occasionally puts in an appearance.

Starting to cloud over here now. Feels like the mean wind speed has dropped slightly, with the occasional lull. Gusts seem fewer and less hearty.

Very strange sky over central London right now.  It's been turning increasingly yellowy orange, but now everything is really dark orange.  Very eerie.  Never seen a sky like it at this time of day!

I think I've seen similar over my lifetime SR (oh, the joys of being an old fart!:D). But, over the past hour, it's almost as if night is falling! Eerie indeed!

Yep, I'm surprised by the ferocity of the gusts here. Took a jaunt into a nearby field earlier, breathtaking, literally!
