I’ve been a bit pre-occupied as of the last few days. We still have about 60 bushfires burning in my State, a couple of them quite near. I work near one area that has been hit. I had a heap of cancellations last Friday as clients needed to look after their homes or stay away from the area. There were sirens non-stop and helicopters water bombing. I am expecting chaotic work tomorrow and don’t really want to be heading closer to fires…
There is another massive uncontrolled fire further north-west of me. Winds are predicted to change in the next few days and I could be in danger. It is unlikely but still… very scary conditions forecast….
There have been hundreds of homes lost. Fire fighters and Rural Fire Services have been doing a fantastic job. The community has been really generous withe people offering shelter and donations from food, clothes, cash to cars.
Fingers crossed that nightmarish weather doesn’t eventuate.
