Bushfires Continue to Burn in Victoria

The bushfires caused by lightning a couple of days ago continues to rage across Victoria:

Today was actually a very nice and mild day here in Victoria but there was a decent wind today which are even more pronounced the closer to the ocean you get which is driving the bushfires.  The Reuters report called these fires the first major ones in four years here in Victoria.  I don’t know where they get their information from but last year Victoria was swamped with bushfires.  I even went to see the aftermath of the fires around Mt. Buller, the Bluff, and the Grampians afterwards. 

This is what my house looked like last year:

Yes that is the sun in the picture and my house was like this for about a month last summer.  It was horrible.  So I know exactly what the communities dealing with the bushfires now are going through and I wish them the best.
