For almost a week the smoke haze from the Aus. fires almost blocked out the sun, what did come through was an orange colour. This morning's sun rise.

Fantastic photo -- alarming situation. I have a sister who lives in Aus on the Gold Coast - can smell the
smoke and has ash falling into the pool -- but at this point is regarded as 'safe'!!!

Gorgeous sunrise though from an awful situation.

I remember being on alert one summer due to forest fires. After packing up the car, we realized that there was no place to go--the ferries, one to the north and another to the south, would be jammed. Sobering thought and thankfully, we didn't have to evacuate.

I just thought, cant they spray the young trees when they plant them, with a anti fire retardant spray ?

The fires are still really bad, tomorrow is not looking good with wind predictions. I have a son in Merimbula ready to leave if necessary.

Hope Whatever rain Australia is getting, the rain gets heavy to prevent any more bushfires
