Our hearts go out to the people in Yarloop and Waroona, townships south of Perth who are at the hands of mother nature due as a massive fire that has ripped through their towns
At present 121 homes have been destroyed and 68,000 hectares of land has been burnt, which is 80mtimes the size of Perth
The fire front as of last night was 200 kilometres long and is being fort by many amazing men and women who are trying to contain this monster, these are the worst fires Perth has seen or 50 years.
We are right in the middle of summer and the W.A ground is tinder dry and this fire was ignited by lightning
As a precaution we have hitched Jack and Roobie together and put a grab back together if we need to leave and have a simple plan to go at a moment’s notice, so as long as our head count is Caroline and I, two dogs, the two horses let loose and all the birds the same we will leave the rest to take its course.
We are in a bush location, I just want to reiterate that the fire is about 60 K's away and we are safe.
I’m sure in the forth coming months we will all be able to offer our assistance to these communities, one thing Australians do really well is step up to the plate and help each other out, in these tough times.
Caroline has just reminded me the fire has been burning for 3 days and as I type this its 8.16 (am) and the temperature is 28 degree's
Don’t be concerned we are only recording our amazing life down under
