View Full Version : Pray for my people :(

This heat wave has caused problems. I have some very close friends in a tiny town called Murray Town. The fire went through there. I was driving my usual way Adelaide to Hawker and had to turn around and take a 100km detour because of the fire. I'll try and post some of my own pics soon. It was epic.


There are other major fires in the state, home and property are gone.

It is the most horrible thing to have the radio say, after so much time listening, 'The fire has at this point, gone through Murray Town - Through or around? - Through". I knew my friends were safe but that doesn't matter. Hubby is painting their baby room for them in two weeks. We're not even sure it's still there yet.

It's also horrible to hear the CFS guy say (about another fire) "The fire has impacted on Xtown and Ytown. For people who have stayed in this area it is too late to leave."

Worst drive home last night ever. I came into the house in tears. Hubby didn't even know about it.

Pray for my people. Please.

That's horrible. I hope that they get it under control soon and pray for everyone's safety
