A personal anniversary
Thanks for your thoughts guys and some of Ralph's snow in the form of rain would be nice [as snow it would be too weird] to help put out the fires and dampen everything down. The lessons from five years ago have been learnt with people putting their fire plans into action and either going early or staying. Leaving once you see the flames racing towards you is just too late, but still people do.
It would appear that at least one of the fires was caused by falling tree branches hitting power lines, but we will have to wait and see on the others.
I remember the sound of the wind five years ago, it was howling and moaning, a hot and gusty dry wind, seemingly straight out of the scorched outback of Australia, which it was. It blew for at least a day and really pushed the fires along and created its own weather system.

Fake It till you Make It, then Fake It some More
