Husband home safe and sound

My husband arrived home about 10pm last night.  All good.  He took a couple of pics from his phone.  They spent most of their time in bushland around Myrtleford and Beechworth.  We feel good he was able to help in some small way.  We had good weather yesterday and it sounds as if these towns are no longer under threat as they were able to get "on top of things" better.

Heading towards a fire in a valley in the hills around Beechworth.

One of the blackened hills.
Lets hope we get some serious rain soon.


  1. Julie, so glad that your dear hubby is home safe after going out to help fight the fires..
    I hope things start to ease up now, so people can start to get some life back..
    Julia ♥..

  2. Glad to hear that your husband is home safe now. Hope you do get some much needed rais soon to get everything green and growing again.

  3. You must be really proud of your hubby! I'm thankful that we have such brave men and women that are willing to protect our communities.
    I'm so glad he's come home safely and I hope that you get some rain soon so regeneration can start!

  5. Fantastic that he's home safe. Even more so that he was able to help. We all feel so useless here, donations just don't seem like much. I am thankful that my family is safe and that yours is too.

  6. That's Good News Julie...Glad that he is Home Now...we are having Rain & so is the sth coast of NSW..hope it gets to Victoria where it's Needed.

  7. Hooray Julie! I think I can hear your sigh of relief all the way in California. And I don't blame you. Thank goodness your family is in one piece and together again. Thanks for the info on how to help, I sent a donation down your way...every little bit helps.
    Big hugs from California!

  8. Glad your hubby got home safely... I recall seeing hills blackened like that about 23 years ago when we moved to Ontario. Tis a sad sight...
    Every night we see your situation out there on the News... Praying for rain for you...
    Your sunset photos are absolutely wonderful! 8-)

  9. Tears in my eyes - what a great man!

  10. People like your husband are such treasures; you must be very proud of him - and so relieved to have him home safe. Best wishes to you both

  11. I'm glad your husband are safe, I can imagine this is a scary scenario. Wish you all good luck, and hope it is over soon.
    I know a lot of people here in Norway that is thinking about you.
    I have a little challenge for you over at my place... maybe a little "some other things to think about" is ok?
    Hope you'll get a lot of rain to rinse the earth and get some of the dust cleaned out, soon.
