Victorian Fires

Here are a few pictures of conditions yesterday as fires approached then raged all about my home. They were taken in mid afternoon and day turned to night as the smoke blacked out the sky as the fires go worse.
Temperature was 118 Deg F or 48 deg C with very strong winds.

These fires were deliberatley lit by some insane people. Many people lost their homes and quite a few their lives.

Shooting is too good for these nut cases.

Fire approach.

Day turned to nigh as smoke and ash blacked out the sky. It was like hell.

Ash and embers attack.

Topshot, I hope you made it through it ok. I agree the nuts need to be reckoned with.
