Sat 9 Feb 2013 Fire evacuation day

What started off as a pretty normal day today ended up a day of total drama watching the sky for signs of smoke and keeping watch as we are doing tonight both on the CFA website and outside.

We had an appointment in Melbourne at Watergardens shopping mall at midday.  Arrived home mid afternoon when the weather looked like it was calm without wind.  Within an hr we received a neighbourhood fire alert phone call from John next door saying there was a fire burning out of control 4 kms away, we then made our ph calls to keep the phone line going and proceeded to pack the car just in case and monitor the situation as there is only one road out of here.  All calm tonight and the fire appears to be still going but controlled with 23 fire trucks and Elvis the water helicopter about 10 kms away as the crow flies!

The link above is a story about Katrina Ellis - a cancer survivor who 'has healed herself'.  Katrina lives on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.  I have her book and follow many parts of it in my day to day living.
