Wow! What a huge couple of days. We've fenced, taken charge of our goats (two in milk and two kids), milked a goat for the first time, taken our children to my parents for their security (the mental pressure is the worst part) and thought about nothing other than fires. It feels very busy keeping track of reports and making sure friends are safe etc. We are not in danger ourselves but feel very surrounded by fire when one flares up nearby.
I've fought with Hubby over fire plans (that I thought were set in concrete), cried to think of what friends are dealing with and worried lots. I hate fire season!
