Thankful Thursday

Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • Our CFA (Country Fire Authority) Volunteers. They have been doing such an amazing job this summer and they have sadly been kept very busy. The fire in Gippsland that has been going for more than a week has kept the CFA on their toes and has burnt over 65,000 hectares (over 160600 acres). 
  • cooler weather that we have been having in between the hot (fire danger) days
  • that new school year is slowly creeping closer. Roll on Feb 1st.
  • twitter and all the helpful info that is passed on my some really good tweeties! @Geehall1 @tyabblemons and @I_enigma are the best when it comes to getting updates in regards to the fires around Oz. 
What are you thankful for this week?

I'm thankful that the fires haven't reached where you live, and feel sorry for the people, homes and property of those whom I has reached. :-( ... I'm thankful for a lot of things this week. Too many to mention here. But I'm Oh So thankful!!!

Poetess, I know what you mean about having a lot to be thankful for. Sometimes there are just way too many to list.

Just a quick update about the fires. I went to my back door earlier this evening and I could smell smoke. It had that distinct grass fire smell. Of course I jumped on to twitter to check all the relevant updates and sure enough there had been a fire in town. Thankfully the CFA had gotten it under control. Gosh I really don't like summer.
