    So we dodged another bullet on Friday. The forecast disaster didn't happen & we actually had some rain the day before.

    We calculated 1 in 89 houses were destroyed on Sth Coast. Goddam surreal.

    Temps are cooling, so with luck, things are turning, at least in my neck of the woods.

    You can see our small town of Bodalla (orange arrow) & how close the fire came, about 3miles. We were worried the 2 fire fronts would hook up but seems ok for now.

    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..

    Thanks for checking in: it's really good to hear that you have managed to evade disaster. I sure wish we could send our rain your way.

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.

    I have spoken to Mick (Tathra) and he is OK. Fires to north and south. He relates several co-workers have lost all.
    Said food, fuel, etc have been slowly coming back in after a long absence.
    Hopefully this thing will be out soon.

    Tathra deserves a break after that last fire they had. Princes Hwy opened so lots of supplies coming thru again.
    Hopefully this thing will be out soon.
    Not much chance of that Tom. Fire across the gully flared up again & another south west of us. Will go on for months I reckon unless we get serious rain.
