Backburning

I've just come back from a Community Meeting in town, over 800 ppl went!

The gist is: We are safe as we can be for the next few days at least; they are very concerned about stronger Northerly winds but they shouldn't eventuate 'til Wednesday next week.

They are doing extensive back-burning & control lines before then.

We can sleep!! Things are stable, and if that were to change they will be out making a lot of noise, so it is safe to go to bed and relax. <= this was the best bit!!

Hubby is going to work tomorrow, childcare is open so the boy will go to CC but I will stay home as I'm not leaving him out here (and going into the suburbs to work) while the fires are still burning..

Just as we got home they lit some control fires across the valley.
