It is warming up in Australia. Today we had a big fry up on the outskirts of Canberra. The Pierces Creek Bushfire is believed to have been started from a burnt-out car. With temperatures in the mid-30s (celcius) and gale force winds, the fire quickly spread and has now burnt out 147 hectares of bush and farmland. The fire is not yet under control.
We were told that the blaze is unprecedented for this time of year. Throughout the day, water-bombing planes flew overhead to deliver their load to the fire zone. The city and surrounding hills were shrouded in a pall of smoke.
As if to compensate for the fear the fire aroused, the sun set in a blaze of glory.
At my place, the crested pigeons perfectly matched the colour scheme of the day.
Hopefully the fire crews will get a break tomorrow. Our thoughts are with them.
