I live in an area where bushfire is an ever present fear, especially during our long hot summers. Difficult terrain makes firefighting even more difficult. My thoughts are with you and your community....stay safe and be prepared as you can be.

I have been wondering about you since reading this post in June and have not been able to find a posting from you since. Very concerned as to how you made it thru this harrowing experience. Please let us know if all is well. Thanks.
