    Friend's parents are ok. The fire blew by their place, and strangely left them unharmed.

    Death toll now up to 84.

    I'm glad your friend's parents are ok.

    84 is just... no words for it.

    Clever post, Victor. You brought a sly smile to my face.

    I just heard about the fires and dropped in to see if all of you are safe. The stories are terrifying and, as usual, the Aussies come through with their statements of courage and hope. My thoughts are with you and yours.

    Those videos of the fires are horrifying. I hope they get them under control soon, and that everyone stays safe.

    God, just been catching up on the news and it looks horrible in AUS. Hope everyone and their loved ones are safe. My thoughts are with you.

    Another Aussie here - I haven't been in Oz since 2004 though.
    Most of the time the first question people ask is "Why???"
    I'm a cold weather person who grew up in Cairns... But... ;-)

    Don't do this to yourself, Mempy - and this comes from an Aussie.

    Nice to see you've gained perspective.

    I pray they get the fires under control soon and that the cooling weather doesn't bring lightning strikes that start more fires. It's looking pretty scary. Why does this have to happen every year.
    I'm going to Melbourne on Wednesday - my Dad's family is over there.
    Originally was just for a holiday/to see shows but I'm going to see what I can - donating'll probably be the only realistic option, but we'll see.

    Apparently there'll be another heat wave whilst I'm over there
