Bush Fire Season

As I sat behind the laptop today the kitchen suddenly became omniously dark..I looked around outside to see the rainclouds approaching,but all I saw dead ahead of me was a cloud of smoke billowing out over the mountain right in front of me! The whole mountain burned..I tried to take pictures of the flames at night just now,but alas,my little camera just isn't good enough for such far ranging pictures...




The front area of that mountain is burning now too...
After noticing the fire, I found ashes around the inside of our house too as I was vacuuming...
Nature is such a powerful force...

  2. Hi Teresa,I am so glad you have had rain. What a relief that must be for you and the animals...We have never yet been in any danger from fire due to the lay of our land and extensive firebreaks around our place...but all it takes is for the wind to blow a burning ember onto your house....especially while you are away...So fingers crossed the serious rains come soon!

  3. Hope the rains come very quickly as yes, I know how easy it is for flames to jump fire breaks if the wind is strong. Take care Diane
