I dont want to tempt fate, but its raining! and fire affected areas could recieve 4 inches on the old scale over the next 48 hours.
Nearly 4 million acres have burnt over the last 50 days, the tide may be turning!
Tha canadians brought the rain! 120 US firefighters still on the way! they might get a nice holiday if they are lucky! The Australian Government has paid their costs, so lets hope they arrive!
Thats not a lot of men, I know, but its how these things work. If you had been away from your loved ones, work and a nice bed for a month. It would be nice to get tapped on the shoulder by an American or a Canadian saying "go home for a week mate, i am taking your place"!
