And so.....

Well it is now official. Hubby is unemployed.  Management-1, Hubby-0.  At least the heat here has subsided. The fires were pretty bad again this year. We still have the fire burning in the open cut mine at Morwell. It has been going for weeks. As you pass the mine you can see water jets trying to extinguish the fires in the coalface. I think it will be a long time till the fires are completely put out. In the meantime, the air quality as you can imagine is horrible. People who have not had asthma attacks for years, are now seeking medical attention. The fire also made it to the outskirts of the town, and quite a ways down the highway.
Fire damage along the highway.

Dead and burnt trees on both sides of the highway.

  2. Sorry to hear about your husband. Employers these days can be so ruthless. I hope he's not out of work for too long.

    Looks like the fires got a bit too close for comfort. They must have been pretty bad to re-activate people's asthma. I assume you've never had it?

  3. Oh no, that's really bad news about your husband's job. I hope there is some form of redress. Ugh, the fires sound awful, very frightening. Life's tricky at the moment - I'm so sorry about that. xxx
