WE WERE TOLD TO BRACE OUR SELVES!

Burnt Landscape
The warnings went out near the end of the week that the entire State of Victoria could after the recent unbearable heatwaves expect the hottest day on record this Saturday. 48c or around 120f and strong winds have caused the greatest natural disaster that this State and Country has ever seen. We are safe here, but the toll is still being counted and fires are still burning out of control in much of Victoria. The statistics are too dreadful to mention. To think that many of the fires were started by arson, is just totally beyond me.

It is hard to imagine - particularly with the arson element. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jennifer, thank you for your kind thoughts. Many people need our prayers at this terrible time. So many have lost their lives and many more are still missing. This has been a didaster beyond beleive with entire towns wiped off the map. New communities are under threat this morning. Debbie.
