Default Bushfires in Tassie

Of all the "natural disasters" that occur I fear fire the most.
My, and I'm sure all Stromtrooper's, heart goes out to the people of Tasmania, and especially our fellow 'trooper friends.

Brings back memories of the bushfires down in Victoria all over again.

I can't really imagine the sense of loss Don, that those who are now homeless and possession less, must feel. I do not know how I could start all over again now at my age. The old body couldn't do it.
When the appeals are launched we all dig deep to help those in need. That adds some help for material things, but for the others? That's tough, really tough!
Good post Don.

The story of the Holmes grandparents, near Dunalley, sheltering under a jetty with their five grandchildren while the bush and their home burned is incredible and inspiring.

Stay safe friends.
