Hi everyone, as I'm sure you know, news travels fast its been very hot here and we again have bush fires (wild fires), there are some 40 burning around the state of Victoria. We are fine the closest to us is about 30km away. in the artical I have posted it talks about Black Saturday. the 5th anniversary of Black Saturday was on Friday just past (7th) and on that day 183 people lost their lives, stock losses were too large to count and 4,500 homes and business were lost. Our town was surrounded by fire it comming as close as the neighbours fences, but we were ok. We have several freinds that lost their houses, lost everything, I have a freind who is a volunteer fire fighter and while he was out fighting fires, helping others he lost his home, cars, everything except for the uniform on this back. His wife and kids were at a near by pool swimming and only had their bathers.
And now we have fire again, lets prey not anything like 5 years ago.
