If only there was a need!

If only there was a need!
It may not be totally obvious, but this burnt roadside sign in the scorched landscape reads "REDUCE SPEED WHEN WET". I think everyone here would be delighted if there was enough rain to make this relevant! :-) In the PiP, an image of some of the damage to timber shops in the tourist village of Mogo - too depressing to add more.

A man made disaster that some refuse to acknowledge and that in itself is a tragedy,
Hope the situation shows signs of improvement soon George

...absolutely shocking, George. Having lived in California for a few years, I have seen some fires, but this is unprecedented.

This must be such a depressing time for everyone. Surrounded by so much destruction. So much lost. I was reading about traditional Aboriginal methods of controlling bush fires this morning and how they might be able to play more of a part. We all need to do what we can to mitigate such events. Here with increasing floods it’s tree planting and rewilding that are being talked about.

We went through an area badly hit by wildfires several years ago and started taking photos but finally gave it up. It was too depressing and we felt peoples' loss too keenly. This is worse than anything I've seen.

Oh dear, if only the sign was relevant now! Another very sad sight George and the PiP, shows the devastation so well. I feel in shock that this has happened so quickly! I hope it can recover just as quickly but so many peoples lives have been ruined with all the loss.

Ohhhhh George...heartbreaking pictures to say the least. :(
I did love the pictures though for their interest and excellent composition.

I know EXACTLY what you mean about not wanting to share more. When our shop burned and the hillside too a few years back, it totally broke my heart. I wouldn't take pictures of the shop ruins. The hillside, only some. Still breaks my heart when I go up there...

We live in terrible times, and your country right now is among those seeing the worst of it. Meanwhile, our fearless leaders are twiddling their thumbs and counting on escaping it all on their private jets ...
