    I've been wondering about that too. It really looks bad on TV. Hope everything's okay.

      It's on the news as I read this and I can't help thinking of our friend Sanda too. Hope all is well for you there. I know what you must be going through just being in the vacinity. We had the fires near us a few years back. Sure is a scary event seeing the night skys lit up behind your house and smoke choking you out.

        I too have experienced wild fires very near my house - even had the car packed with all of my family photos just in case we had to evacuate. Very unnerving. Hope you're doing OK Sanda.

          Don't forget Matt Elder - he's in Sydney too.

          Hope you guys are okay - keeping fingers crossed that no-one gets hurt.

            That's right Sam, we do have at least 2 from Sidney. I guess we will be relieved when they finally check in with us.

              Thank you all for your concern, it's appreciated. The fire situation is very bad. We're not in danger here but there are some pretty bad fires only about 10kms away. The air is so full of smoke and embers we have been advised to stay indoors as much as possible.Most of the bad fires are in bushland which is inaccessable except by foot which makes the job of fighting the fires more difficult. They have been water bombing but the mountainous nature of the area makes it difficult to put out the fires. The beautiful mountains just near us are ablaze and many homes have been lost but luckily no human life has been, which is something we are all grateful for. Hopefully we'll get some rain soon and that'll help put the fires out.
              My family and I are safe and there is very little danger to us but we are praying for those less fortunate.

                  Ohio Tornados Tonight
                  by Jakaleena
                  I know there are a lot of fellow Ohioans who are members here, so I thought I'd check in and see how we all are after that rash of Tornados tonight.

                  As for me (Holmes Co.), I spent about 2 hours huddled with my fellow workers in the center of the building waiting for things to calm down...

                  It looks like you're back up and running. Are you all set now? A bad computer is only second in line to a bad car!

                  OK, boring as it may be here it is. We've lived here in South Florida since 1979 because we just got tired of year round snow. I can't say I'm sorry since I loved summer time best but I do miss the seasons though.
                  The photos are of the front and back views of our house and one of our dog thrown...

                  It sure was hard to choose the photos I wanted to share with all of you. Unfortunately, I don't think my photos truly do justice to the beautiful area I live in. I'm located just outside of Fort Collins, CO in the first tier of the Rocky Mountain foothills.

                  Wild fires
                  by jeaniesa
                  While I'm not in any danger with existing fires, having been near enough to one two years ago to pack my car with irreplacables (i.e., photos and computer), the wild fires raging in CO right now have me on edge.

                  The latest news on the fire near Denver is that it's 10 miles from the SW...
