I am glad you are OK. Fires seem to be getting worse in California each year, like they are in other places around the globe.
Many Australians, particularly Victorians, are dreading what the upcoming fire season might bring. A couple of weeks ago Victorian Premier John Brumby said
Thirteen years of record of record dry in our State providing basically tinderbox type conditions will give us a set of circumstances in the forthcoming fire season which is potentially more dangerous than that which we have just gone through.
Lets hope that everyone is more prepared than they were back in February of this year when 173 people died.
