Lost

The sadness and desperation coming from the fire zones is unbearable.
The fires moved so fast about 120 k's an hour. We are talking about an area where they have had below average rain for the last 11 years
The temps had been 40+ degrees c for a week ( 104 degree Fahrenheit). Top that with winds blowing 120 k's an hour (74. mile/hour (mph). And rural townships far apart from each other
with narrow winding Hill roads in and out of the area.

Not much chance.

And what really pisses me off the most, wouldn't you know that the Insurance Companies shares dropped. When people need help the most. Others pull away from helping all for the
mighty dollar.

People have lost everything. Everything. Children, Grandmothers, and whole families.

And it's not over yet.


But I have to say that the people whom volunteered to fight this fire are amazing people. It was 46 and 47 degrees c (116.6 degree Fahrenheit) without the flames and some of them were working 24 hour shifts.
