The past few days have been something of a strange, scary time. Bush fires during the Australian summer are hardly unusual (sadly), but the Bangor fire is much closer to home than we normally experience. Not just physically (it was heading in our direction at one point, although it never actually go that close to us), but emotionally as well - friends of ours have lost everything.

Despite the sadness for lost homes & the damage to local grasslands & the Wirrabara forest, I'm very thankful that no lives have been lost.

& also thankful to the awesome CFS volunteers who have done their utmost to protect people & property.
