❝ Black Saturday is my third bushfire.
The anniversary of Black Saturday is coming up. Ten years. Where I live, bushfires are a part of life, it's not something to be terrified about. You roll with the land, adjust. My first bushfire was Black Wednesday. The second was Ash Wednesday, then Black Saturday. I'll keep adding more stories as the day approaches. Here's my first:
My First Bushfire
❝ My earliest memory, pulling up in the driveway, looking up and seeing all the tree—tops on fire.
It was 40 degrees C by nine o'clock in the morhing. 230 fires state—wide. Winds up to 119Km/Hr. 22 people killed, over 250,000 hectares burned and greater than 200 house burned down. One of them was a friends property across the road. Black Wednesday was my introduction to bushfires.
