Four days ago I posted photos of a neighbour’s farm burning….
Today it was our turn.
The horror of seeing the flames racing across hundreds of acres, and the trees burning, within five hundred meters of our homes, was quite overwhelming. Thank God, the wind changed direction and kept it away from our houses…..only my nephew’s house suffered damage although hundreds of acres were burned and a lot of this year’s hay crop destroyed.
Again I say how grateful I am to the volunteer fire fighters of this district and all who dropped what they were doing to come and battle the blaze. Without them, it would have jumped the highway and continued on towards town.
The view from my back door tonight…..
