    The bushfires missed swallowing our town of 12,000 people by a perfectly timed shift of the wind… others were not so lucky.

    I worked on the broadcast of rolling fire coverage live to the local area while the fires raged down the road, people called the station in distress and sent sms of what they could see.

    Everyone just couldn’t believe how silently and quickly the fires came upon them.

    I’ve never seen weather like what we had that day. Winds that would blow you over, the sun beating down 46 degree heat. It got to 48.8 in a town an hour north of us and still the backpackers trundled north in their combis.

    We’ve now attended to a fire break in our backyard (which backs onto a vast wheat field) and cleaned up some of the debris around the house. If nothing else, people are starting to realise the reality of bushfires not just in the bush but increasingly in urban areas.
