Blazes Down Under

My troubles are nothing compared to Down Under right now.   Australia is having a terrible time with drought induced wild fires that have now killed 84 people.  Mercy!  

Prayers and thoughts and best wishes for all affected way down there.  Here's hoping for several days of nice cool soaking rain.

Being a Texas native, I know what drought looks like, and this one looks really bad.

Thankyou. Toll is now 108 and is bound to rise, sadly

And according to the news here, they suspect arson.

How awful!

Florida's not in too great shape itself. It's so dry here, that if I just pet the cat it snaps.
She doesn't like that too much.

And my own hair is ghastly, I can do nothing with it. I wash it, style it, it dries (air dry) ...I go outside, feed the beasts, ...come in and I have to wet it all over again.
