Sorry I have been silent for so long. It has been a long few weeks.
The town I live in has been surrounded by Bushfires. Not only have I needed to help a couple of friends out in this situation, but the constant smoke has been doing a number on my lungs.
Still, I am far better off than many. Over three hundred homes have been destroyed. My best wishes go out to those who have lost everything.
Here is a list of organizations for donations if you can.
I would suggest either WIRES for native wildlife in need or the Australian Lions Foundation for helping people.
I hope to be getting back to regular updates at the beginning of next week. I hope this nightmare ends for everyone in NSW and Queensland before that.
A Cyclone coming across the beaches would be a different sort of disaster, of course, but I suspect I am not alone in praying for that over the wildfires that are currently burning and that will light up if we don’t get some heavy rain soon.
