Bushfire.

Howdy Mates.

Just wanting to let you know we are fine here in case you have heard of our bushfires.  We had to evacuate our home yesterday morning.  We came back this morning, the weather had eased overnight but is expected to worsen later today.  We are on watch and alert and listening to our radio which gives updates every few minutes. The first photo was Friday arvo and the second yesterday morning.  We were surrounded by smoke, ash and burnt leaves.   



Mum says we were very very good considering all the stress and racing around getting stuff organised so we could leave.  I, Stella stayed at my hu-brother's place in Adelaide and Rory and Jinx stayed with our aunty with mum and our other sissy.   Tyler stayed with our sissy at her friend's place.  Our dad stayed home with Penny to keep an eye on the house cause sometimes embers will start housefires  when they are floating around.  Don't worry though, mum gave them orders to GET OUT OF TOWN if the fire came closer.  

We have heard 12 houses have been lost, 22 injuries to Firefighters and a terribly tragic event where a boarding kennel was lost.  All the cats perished and 40 dogs were saved but other dogs lost as well.  It was heartbreaking to hear. 

We will update tomorrow or over the next few days if we aren't home.  See ya soon and keep our amazing Volunteer Firefighters in your thoughts.  We are in awe of them because they are so very brave.  We are also getting support from New South Wales who have sent 15 fire trucks to help us out.   

No worries and love, Stella and Rory
