“The fire has reached an intensity where it has started to create its own weather” – CFA spokesperson on the news tonight.

it would be a great quote for Pentecost, if it weren’t that it were a hellish reality for huge parts of Victoria tonight.

The smoke has made it to Melbourne. We’ve been covered in a haze of smoke all day. the smoke alarm in the apartment downstairs has been going off all day.

i hear the names of threatened towns on the news reports and think of all the people i know who live in these places – some of whom read this blog.

prayers tonight for those for whom today and tomorrow are the most terrifying days of their lives.
