David said...

yes - we fear fire, but God is bigger than even our fears. I will join you in prayer, right now

Surcie said...

I was just reading about this. How absolutely awful.

PI said...

John.g:hopefully the worst is over. On TV it looks completely burnt out. An awful tragedy.

David: thank you.

I just keep praying and hoping it is over soon and healing can begin.

PI said...

notes fromTFT:the least we can do is send them our loving thoughts and prayers.

Surcie: we have family in Australia so heard early from their phone call and then I read Miss Diarist who lives there but is safe thank goodness.

Scarlet: apparently it isn't a rare happening in Australia. sadly there ar sick people everywhere even in blogland.

It's incredible that anyone could deliberately start a fire under such circumstances. It makes it so much worse than a 'natural disaster' - and they're terrible enough.

PI said...

Sandy: one wonders if they couldn't have a eucalyptus free zone all around the town. They go up like a tinder box but maybe they are uncontrollable.

This is just HORRIFIC! And it still rages on....So very terrible.

Desperate sad news. I heard on the radio earlier the death toll is over 180.

Relieved to hear the family are safe Pat.

PI said...

Naomi: you must have an idea of what it must be like living in California.

Hangar Queen: thank you - it is a great relief - where they are it's mainly floods. They have such extremes of weather.

I'm glad your family is safe, dear. Horrible times down under.

PI said...

Than you Randall. I can't stop thinking about those people who now have nothing
