Still here


We are still here - this is what it was like after Thursday - burnt leaves all around us, but the town escaped fire when the wind changed.

We have become expert on wind directions. We have a couple of quiet days now, and poor conditions expected again on Wednesday / Thursday. It is going to go on like this for weeks!

But we are fine - and have done all preparation possible.

(Just in passing - in my state especially, we are encouraged to stay and defend our homes. The word "evacuation" is no longer used. So we are really quite confident that if/when the fire comes, we will be ready)

Oh Linda... I saw a story the other night on the news about the wild fire raging Down Under. They said it might keep going for many long weeks because it is so very large and the bush is so tinder dry. What a huge amount of stress you must be under! Take care of yourself and know that we all will be thinking of you.
