Hopefully this downpour will help get the fires under control.
The CFA say it’s a double-edged sword however, as rain can hamper fire fighting efforts on the ground, interfere with backburning strategies, and lightning strikes from the storms can ignite fresh fires.
But the feeling of cool air and all that moisture was heavenly.
We ran outside, faces skyward, mouths open.
Just laughing and laughing.
Thankyou to everyone who sent well wishes, prayers and blessings. We are not in direct danger here it seems, unless the Kinglake fires escalate wildly over the next few days, which now appears unlikely. But it’s still scary for city slickers like us, new to the bush.
PS. My show and tell is on flickr this week.
