Fortunately for us the cool change blew in not long after it started which sent it back towards the north but not fortunate for those living in that direction. I was still on edge that night however and kept the ABC radio on with the fire reports. This was the view from the bottom of my street Monday night. (you can see a bit better if you click on the photo for the larger view)
The firefighters did a great job however and it was under control or contained by Thursday before the next hot day with northerlies Friday.
I guess I was a bit more nervous as I had just returned from working at the Churchill - Jeeralang Callignee bushfires in Gippsland and that fire went a long long way in a short period of time. By the way it wasn't windy when these photos were taken the trees were left like this after the hot winds and fire had gone through.
