Holy smoke!

47 degrees. 70kmh winds. Bushfires out of control to the north of us. Lovely, tranquil natural bushland on two sides of our housing estate. Where it hasn't rained for two months; not to mention the big bad drought we've been having for years, so everything is nice and dry. Oh - and did I mention those 70kmh winds were blowing from the NORTH?

That was one scary day I don't want to live through again.

The Baby took this from the front yard at around 8:30pm:

That is an amazing (if scary) photo. My heart goes out to all you Aussies who are having to cope with such scary fires and their tragic consequences.
