Victoria Burns

I feel a bit distressed. I know these places. They are places of my childhood. From The Age newspaper.

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) said properties had been destroyed in the small communities of Toongabbie, Cowwarr and Seaton in the Heyfield area of Gippsland.

And what will I wake to tomorrow?

The authorities have been warned that the fire front could affect the Walhalla, Coopers Creek and Happy Go Lucky communities.

I have learned memories of when Walhalla was completely burnt out and many lives lost.

Stop laughing folks, this is serious. (old Australian cartoon for you o/s people)

I may write something sensible about the fires tomorrow if I am well enough. I have called into to work as unwell for tomorrow. I forecast a miraculous recovery from illness at about eight a.m. so I may then use the time to catch up with many undone tasks.
