Smoke gets in your eyes...

That big explosion and oil fire in Hemel Hempstead? While it didn't wake us up, you can see the smoke pillar from here in Putney - and there's a smear of black across the whole sky now. It reminds me of being in LA during the wildfires of 2003.

I took the photograph up on our roof terrace at about midday.

It's a biiiig fire - you can also see the smoke plume from orbit. It's the black blob in the middle of Southern England in this picture:
