Bush fires have been very close to us in other years and there is no exception with the current situation. The smoke and distant glow of a bushfire is very unsettling and even though our farm is low risk I feel very concerned for those people close to the bush and existing fires. Our eldest son and daughter in law have a fire fighting unit for their property and our other son and daughter in law, like us, are reasonably low risk. They have a spray unit on the back of their Ute that could be used if necessary. There is a fire at Trafalgar north of the Princes Highway ( about 45 K from here) and we can see the smoke haze. Please stay safe everyone.
