Just thought I would write an update on what's happening with the bush fires. The storm we had in Ballarat yesterday wasn't much and only lasted an hour or so. I am pretty sure we will be spared from the fires.
There are now 104 confirmed dead and the toll could get as high as 170. What makes me really mad is that they have made very fire zone a crime zone as they think that the fires were deliberately lit.
It breaks my heat to see to see what going on the needless loss of life and some people got to safety with nothing more than the clothes they had on their backs and they've lost everything and to think this might have been prevented.
The good thing to come out of this for my family is the people we know who live in the area are safe. I have to add they are safe for now. But the weather is going to be kind to the fire fighters for the rest of the week so hopefully they will get the fires under control ASAP.
I will continue to purr for everyone involved.
