Sincere thanks to everyone who has sent messages and emails inquiring after my brother , Paul. I am happy to say that he faces no immediate danger, due to a wind change. That area has been warned to expect to be placed on high alert again by the week end, as temperatures are rising and the winds are gaining momentum.
This morning the smell of smoke is permeating the air, even though the dark smoke clouds have dissipated due to the winds. It is good to see the sun and relatively clear skies.The fires ares till burning out of control in many areas and the other States have sent in teams of firefighters to relieve the exhausted Victorian men and women, so they can regroup, rest and prepare for the days ahead.
