Subject: Victorian bushfires
84 dead so far, 750 homes wiped out.

Talking to my aunt tonight, who lives in Bendigo (where the fires still burn) says that she's lost one cousin already, and one is missing still.

She's got a backyard full of birds, who've come for the food and water she has put out for them.  The nearby trees have been torched, birds are already starving, and they're quite happy to take advantage of her generosity. 

Her car's loaded and they're ready to run at a moment's notice.

Photos of Bendigo Fires (from a little distance, I have had enough of fires for a little while after the Canberra fires back in '03)
The images below are mostly panoramics and this forum cuts them off, link to photos at bottom.
Lots of smoke
*photo no longer on the tubes*
A flare up, either tree tops going up or a gas tank, heard rumors that it may have been a petrol station..doubt it though.
*photo no longer on the tubes*
On a happier note the fires made for crazy sun sets and sun set rainbows..never seen that before

Whoah, is that a smoke rainbow in #3?  Very cool.

I mean, in a 'fuck off we're gonna die' kind of way...

Nice photos, thanks for posting.

How're you doing?  No sign of impending doom, I hope?

There was very little smoke that evening, about 5 minutes after the flare up in photo 2 they waterbombed the fire and then there was mostly watervapor, the fires here are completly undercontroll and the 20 degree drop in ambient temperature has helped alot.
Time to go and check out the fires around Wodonga since we are movign there tomorrow...
*edit
Some aftermath photos:
