I'm in Victoria. I don't really know what to say... I haven't been directly affected, but the loss (people, houses animals, and the sheer amount of land that was burned) is just devastating. It's like a nightmare, it hasn't really sunk in yet. Every time you turn on the news you hear about more death and heartache, and the fires are still burning!
I know some people who lost houses, my uncle was up till 3 in the morning spotting fire on his property and he watched it come up and over the hill towards his house, and a good friend of the family, well, he's like family, is out there fighting the fires while his wife (my mum's best friend), is in hospital with some sort of virus.
Yeah, it's been a full on last couple of days...
I just cannot comprehend how someone would DELIBERATELY do this! It's just beyond my undertanding. I hope they catch the wackos who did this!
