Change of plans

View from our  house this afternoon
Well, I was planning to write about the book I'm reading at the moment. but as is its wont, life had different ideas for today.  Something much more frightening ...

There's been a bushfire in our suburb - we saw the flames as we drove up the hill and saw the roiling orange smoke.  Too close for comfort.  No-one can imagine the terror unless they've lived through it.  My little glimpse today made my blood run cold.

One of the most unsettling things was the sound of helicopters flying over our house
Thanks to the teams who worked so hard to contain the fire.  Unsung heroes - God bless them every one.
