With over 2 million hectares of land burned so far...

and probably another 2 million before it's done, this will be the largest combined set of bush fires Australia has seen in modern times. Where we are at, the fires are set to reach our mountain ranges in the next three to four days. Me personally (and the fam) aren't necessarily in harms way as we live in the center of town, but the rural area's about to be affected will be in harms way severly. Just our bush fire that started in the Wollemi National Forest, is more than three times that of all the fires in California combined... this does not include any of the other fires currently burning.

This image is of our back yard. The town is about two miles in diameter, and you can only see about 100 yards away, if that.

RIP to the three American firefighting pilots whose plane went down while helping with these blazes.

Damn, that sucks. What's the latest on all of this? Is it so out of control that they're largely just letting it all go until the weather turns, or is there some end in sight?

i think they decided early on to let it burn itself out, aside from the obvious, trying to protect lives and property.

as far as intensity goes, there are spots that are still at great risk, but with over 14 million hectares been burnt, theres not much left.

there has been enough rain in general the last couple weeks, and with the heat tamped down a bit, it's more about fire management i think.

the plane going down was merely a freak accident. some are wondering aloud whether a plane that size has the structural strength to be dive bombing fires like this over extended periods of time.
