Well, what can I say? I can't even think of words to describe how I feel. My heart goes out to everyone involved. The number of lives lost and torn apart is incomprehensible. Thank goodness for the fire fighters, how much greater the toll if not for them? It is heartening to see the Aussie spirit - the way the whole country bands together to do whatever possible for those that need it.
One thing it has shown me, is that we need to be better prepared as we too live in a rural area. We will now be working to have our Bushfire plan in place, rather than the 'adhoc' plan we had.
