It’s raining, but not on the bushfires yet

It was the hottest day on record yesterday, reaching over 46 degrees. Those of us in the city were lucky enough to be able to stay inside and keep cool, but my heart goes out to the firefighters, homeowners and businesses dealing with fires around the state. So far 25 people have died in the fires and over a hundred homes have been lost. Right now, it is raining here – I hope some of it reaches the bushfires outside of Melbourne.
