Viña del Mar view (means from Valpo towards Viña - Con Con - Quintero), here is how the sky looks like at 17:02.

Colors like... kind of when the last solar eclipse was.

An extremely strong fire. No power here. Flames and smoke are visible from the building. Close to the city.

Sad sad sad, what sort of sick people do these things to these poor people? over 60 houses so far damaged, and on Christmas eve.

This year, I am not complaining about the the cold and rain we have manged to hang on to so late in the season in frutillar. today, we had torrential rain, followed by hail, followed by beautiful evening. all in one day. sunny, but not too sunny. comfortable 23 celcius, with light wind.

everything is still green here, and after seeing the videos of Australia, I'll take it.

I think of it as fire weon insurance.

I needed some matches this morning to light an oven. I had some sitting around in storage. they would not light because they had absorbed to much humidity. I had to use a lighter to light my matches.

good luck getting anything around here to burn.

200 houses burned.

https://www.latercera.com/nacional/noti ... so/951619/

they have a problem, due to the ghetto/ unregulated way houses are allowed to be built on those hilltops, the government does not know how many houses or families lived in these areas. It has been a problem year after year. same reason fire trucks and water can not get to these areas.

It looks like a smoking volcano in that picture.
