Fire and Rain

Many thanks to those who’ve expressed concern about us out here.  The wildfires in southeast Australia are widespread, but fortunately are not affecting us here in Geelong (or the other major metropolitan areas).  It has been extremely hot recently, and the fires have spread quickly.  The rains and flooding in far north Queensland are likewise devastating, a testament to this country’s extremes.

For more details, see Melbourne’s The Age.  The article titled “Our Darkest Day” includes a map of where the bushfires are.
