One week later and after 40mm of rain this once beautiful section of forest along the Kersbrook Road resembles something from another post apocalyptic planet.
Gaping trenches where tree roots have burned away.
Ash washed into gutters and fresh clay exposed by the rain.
Smouldering steam and smokey memories waft from rents in the earth where the fire has retreated and continues to burn.
Thank you for the rain.
