This late in the bush fire season we were suprised to find ourselves experiencing a bush fire emergency. Thought that time of the year was behind us. Anyway, I was just about to start my second class for the day when they decided to close the school and send everyone home. Which I think was wise given the way things were unfolding. A couple of hours earlier we'd had a pretty wild thunderstorm and lighting very close by. Seems the bush fire was started by the lightening. Thems the breaks. I went down town late and made this quick video of the smoke over Healesville as it thickened. And now its the weekend. Time for a glass of wine me thinks.
