I'd like to offer my sympathy for the enormous losses you've suffered and hopes that the 'wet' comes early.

I am in Adelaide and we are preparing for bushfires here, as the threat is very real this time of year. I have relatives in Victoria and some very close to the fires. It is unbelievable. Devestating and the death toll that stands at 170 is going to rise. This is the worst natural disaster in Australia's history.
To everyone affected by these fires, my deepest sympathy. My thoughts are with you all.

I have spent the last 3 days in tears watching it all on TV...it is just so heartbreaking.
Thinking of you all in Victoria.

I have been moved to tears over the last couple of weeks but have noted how the Australian people are so committed to each other and do not want to be overcome by anything. I seriously am in awe of their 'mateship' attitude and feel proud to have become a citizen on Australia Day this year. My thoughts are with all those that have perished and their families, friends and neighbours.
