Bushfire blog – 10 Dec 2002

Yippee!!!! It’s raining & it has been doing this since last night. The heavy rain has put out the last of the fires near us. The house still smells strongly of smoke, but the sound of the rain is a great comfort.

It’s funny a friend at work told me today how his son was bushwalking down south in the Snowy Mountains at the same time we experienced the fires – they had snow (even tho’ it is the middle of summer here). Australia has really strange weather some times.
