I have spent the afternoon at my in-laws place – escaping the heat with their air-con and pool. The benefit of being here (as I am still here) is their expansive view of the Yarra Valley, which is beautiful on most days, but today Victoria has been burning. There is smoke from multiple fires, the sky has been an atrocious colour, we saw flame earlier on and as the night has come, a lovely threatening orange glow. As I type, our friends are leaving their home.
It’s been 46 C today, that’s 114.8 F
It would be really good if you could pray.
