I myself am nowhere near the bushfires of Southern Australia, and none of the fires in this area are coming close to being threatening.
I do know several of you who ARE down in Victoria, and I hope that you, your family, your loved ones and your possessions are safe and will come to no harm.
I'm smack-dab in the middle. To the south of me bush fires are raging out of control.
To the north of me the land is being completely flooded by cyclones.
What a humbling land this is.
