Well to be honest,its a bit hard to do! Some places seem to be better and settling down eg.Tasmania.Others,N.S.W & Qld,have been having a lot of new ones starting.Thankfully not close to us,quite a long way away,but the smoke haze is still thick and even with the house closed & aircons on,you can still smell it.I have not been to bad through the day,but have been coughing a lot at night.We are still not over the worst, as it is tinder dry,and the temps have been getting up in the 40s,even at night it is still b.... hot!! Unfortunately there are still fires being lit by IDIOTS,for the want of another word!! I just wish the rain would come for longer than 2 mins.just teasing us!
Today is the 2nd annivesary,of our terrible floods,where so many people lost there lives & others there homes,some towns
actually dissapeared! It was a dreadful time in Qld.People are still suffering from it.Now here we are 2 years later,praying for rain,it realy is ironical!!
We spoke to a friend today that runs a station,he was in tears,they have nearly a half million acres,running cattle and sheep.
Graham said the devestation is terrible,so much has been lost,to add to it, the dingos,have been attacking the animals that are still alive.He said that they were just numb at the outset,but now the adrenaline is kicking in,and they are hard at work,clearing land, and bodies of the sheep,and cattle.(Sorry if I'm depressing anyone!)
There are so many stories,some to graphic to tell.
Rotary clubs cfa,and so many more,to numerous to mention, have been absolutely wonderful,trucking in good quality hay etc
for the animals,and supplying bedding and clothes etc.
Anyway,better get to bed,dont know about sleeping!! Tomorrow is a new day,I think that was Scarlett,in Gone with the winds saying,but very true.
Goodnight my friends,Wendells xxxx
