I know, it's awful. It terrible how many people and wildlife are been killed or injured. Australia is a beautiful country, it is a shame it is getting wrecked by these wildfires. It's too bad we can't send our weather systems over to them.

I heard something about it when Simon Baker was on "Jay Leno" last night. He was talking about something horrible that had happened in Australia and I didn't catch it, but I bet that's what it was. I hope people are doing okay and it is so sad that it happened. :(

In Australia, they are actually called bushfires, because it is bushland. Believe it or not, alot of affected areas have new growth again. But yes, it is a tragedy. One year on, and people are still homeless... People in the bush have a new system now. They will be alerted on their phones if there are fires nearby.
