I cut my teeth bush walking in that area.
Hope the huts at Tamboritha and in the vicinity, such as Kelly's, stay safe.

Hope all the swaggers stay safe?  It's a very stressful time and it can go on for days. A lot of CFA guys were in our street last year, good professional crews.

Sad to see the media haven't improved any re the Halls Gap Zoo.
Here for a good time, not a long time!

Yup, that has lit up the scanner, they're throwing everything at it, wind change will push it straight into you.

SW has just hit at my place.

Just got a call from my partner.  The paddock next door to her Auntie and uncles Gisbourne property is alight.

I wish this wind would bugger off!

Our neighbours just turned up with their BIL & SIL who have just been evac'd from their Mickelham property.
Wind started to swing a bit more to the west now.

Where we're somewhat ok is that it's predominantly grassland between there and here. Just hoping it doesn't find it's way back into Dissa or Wombat SF's.

I'm now dealing with an extremely fired up wife.

My stepdaughters father lives in Warrandyte. 1 block from the fire.  Its the stepdaughters weekend with her father, she got home late last night and went straight to her downstairs room.  Her father, his wife and 2 young children evacuated at lunch, but never bothered checking her bedroom!!!
Poor girl woke up to smoke everywhere and a deserted house and street.  She got hold of him and he went back an hour later got her, but thank god my wifes in Rosebud today because she is in kill mode...
