This moving picture was on the news website today. So many horrible things have happened in Victoria since last Saturday with the high temperatures and strong winds creating the scariest fires ever. So many people have lost their lives and property - the news is counting every day the death toll from the fires and telling stories of how people have lost everything they owned. It is very heartbreaking to see.
Today there is focus on the wildlife that is suffering the effects as well. Poor animals! But this is a lucky koala that managed to survive and meet help as well. I wish I could give it a hug too.

With the last heatwave, all the trees have started shedding their leaves as if it is autumn. It makes me feel quite sad to see them looking like that. There are loads and loads of crisp dried brown leaves everywhere and most plants just look fried. :(
We've got another terribly hot day today. From the morning, the temperature has been climbing steadily up - it is now 45 degrees! Bobbers is in the cool safety of the toilet and we are holed up at home doing art and craft! Hehehe! We have our market stall tomorrow - luckily the temperature will be normal then.

Update to weather: -
The temperature has dropped 15 degrees in less than half an hour! What exciting weather we have here! Strong winds around though.
