Sirens again this morning, and first thing, I hopped onto the net to check out the bushfire situation close to my house in Gippsland. My housie gave me the heads up late last night, just after I'd gone to bed while she was up watching late news.
The fires are close but there is not much I can do at this stage. I can drive the two hours down, perhaps not even get into town, to pack some things and leave again. As a single person I don't have the resources to work to protect my house, and it is of course insured. It's the stuff inside that's important. And ultimately, it's the stuff inside ourselves that's most important.
So today, my focus is partly in Boolarra. And my anger potentially directed at the f^cktards who have been lighting fires around town all week. Having survived one house fire, I have no time for pricks who think endangering people and destroying their histories is fun.
