There are many bush fires around Australia at the moment. Currently there are a few fires starting up in south east Queendsland where we live but they aren't near us at the moment. One of the mods on the forum had a daughter evacuated in Victoria this afternoon. Luckily, she and her baby daughter could safely drive to her grandparents place. Hanno suggested I give you this link for a fire safety plan. It's the NSW plan but it's got a lot of useful safety tips for all of us.
I hope everyone in the fire zones stays safe and I hope our friends in the northern hemisphere aren't suffering too much in the cold while we swelter down here.
