fire

This is the Crowdy Heady fire from my front yard, between me and Al.
As of 9pm it is 10km from here. There is about 2km of lake between the other side of the mountain and the fire.
I hope it doesn't come this way. I've got what I call the Four Hundred Acre Wood behind my place. (450 acres of bush that hasn't burnt for 25 years)

There's a lot of people here.
I stopped for a convoy of fire trucks going into the Innes Lake (Port Macquarie) fire on my bus run.
They were from Ingleside, Duffys Forest, Dural, Jamberoo and Tumblegum. All hundreds of km from here.
Add all the blokes helping out everywhere else and it's a massive effort.
I just got a message from my WRC team leader that Forests NSW have banned all forest access from Sydney to the Queensland border.
The WRC is still on, for now. We are under strict absolute no smoking, gas BBQ or any flame in the bush rules at the rally. Strictly cold food only.

I’m currently stuck working in the Emergency Operations Centre at Woodford (there’s a Bushfire here at the moment but to a lesser extent than The fires you fellas on the North Coast are facing)

The southerlies are blowing the smoke north you say. Your smoke is all up here this morning. It's nothing compared to Port yesterday. At 3pm yesterday the smoke was so bad it was like twilight. I couldn't read the times on my run sheet without a light on.
We are OK so far, there are a lot of people worse off than us.
The fires in Port Macquarie have closed the roads from the highway into town again.
The fire in Crowdy Bay national park has reached the coast. That could cause problems for Dunbogan if the wind gets any stronger.
