I have been wondering how to post about this devastating event. I find it hard not to be too emotional. The images and tales of survival we have been confronted with clutch at my heart and make me weep. I feel so sorry for the thousands of people who have been affected by these horrific fires.
I happy to say that we are safe. We had an anxious time on Saturday and left home in the afternoon when we heard about the fire at Redesdale. At that stage the wind was blowing in a northerly direction towards us. Once the change came we were able to go back home but what created safety for us endangered many others.
The fires are still blazing. Many people are still in danger. We can only hope that the winds will drop.
