New bush fires

There is a major bushfire happening around Daylesford. Luckily Paul and I and the kids and Steph have been in Sydney so we are safe, and we are in constant contact with friends and neighbours who are there. Everyone is ok, a few people have left but most are still in town. We are desperately hoping that today will not bring the fire right into town. We are going to try and get in to grab some things and pick up our pets then we'll stay in Melbourne for a few days while we see what is happening. This is horrible.

I'm also keeping everything crossed. The most important thing is that you stay safe. Things can be replaced, but precious lives can't.
