Default Australia on Fire

My heart goes out to all those affected by the terrible fires in Australia at the moment.. Knowing what its like myself to be surrounded by a landscape on fire on a couple of occasions I empathise with you. I just heard that my sisters ex home on Kangaroo Island is threatened and that a good percentage of that beautiful eco island is on fire. Its heart breaking . Keep safe people we are thinking about you.

I feel for the people. Just saw another report on BBC news about the change of wind and the consequence. Terrifying just to watch it on TV.

Two sadly dead on Kangaroo Island, and a huge area burnt with the fires still going. The posh resort hotel has been burnt out and now looks like something from a war film.
