Good morning tisketsmum. From what I have seen and heard on the TV, that appears to be part of the problem which quite defies an explanation. ♥♥♥

When we lived in Perth I was acquainted with a couple who absolutely adore train travel and every second year they loved to make the trip on the Indian-Pacific from Perth to Sydney which is a trip of 4352 km (2704 miles) and as I read recently it is one of the truly transcontinental trains in the world.
This couple also intended to make the trip on The Ghan which runs between Adelaide and Darwin and covers 2879 km (1789 miles). I don't know if they ever did this trip.

Thank you all for your comments. One of the reasons I created this puzzle was to have folks check in who live in Australia. And while I appreciate the "relatively safe" I also worry (because I have asthma) about the folks in those areas and downwind from there who have all the crappy air to breath from this inferno. In Albukwerky we can smell wood smoke in the air from fires pretty far away. We've had a relatively mild fire season this year, but even smoke from fires in Arizona the Four Corners (where Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico meet) area. Air quality warnings are a daily occurrence here.

Thank you Impie and Pammi for clarifying Lynette's location.....and for the update. Absolutely horrific.

Hi Pammi. In December 1994 we visited your stunning country and travelled on the India-Pacific train from Sydney to Perth, so have seen a little of the area now in such trouble. I can't imagine the trauma of losing everything you own, it must be like you've almost ceased to exist as there is no evidence of your life left.
I've seen a suggestion that the problems of controlling such a huge fire have been exacerbated by the cutting of vegetation to form a "fire break" area being banned, so the fire continues to rampage through the undergrowth to reach the next tree, and the next .... Is this true?

Pammi

Hi there girls. We are in Tewantin at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast and Lynette lives approx. 30 minutes south from us.

Hello to.....tisketsmum, thurman, GG, tedebears, Impie, jb, Anne, Nancy and Betty......thanks to all of you for your concern. Our wonderful country is in total turmoil with today being every bit as bad as we were warned it would be. The heartbreaking scenes in southern New South Wales and Victoria being televised all day today are nothing less than tragic and horrifying and still there is no end in sight and yet these wearied firefighters battle on. I saw earlier tonight on the TV news that there is a group of specialist USA firefighters who are heading our way to join all the other wonderful people from other countries who are here to help in the ongoing fight.

Impie

@calluna - hi Nancy, it's sweet of you to be concerned about Lynetteoz, she lives near Pammi in Queensland. She should be, like you said, 'relatively' safe!♡

Add my voice to all the rest! :((

calluna

Amen. Thank you, Anne, for posting this.

Any news from @Lynetteoz ? Can't remember whereabouts she lives.

@Pammi - good to hear you are (relatively) safe!!

Denyce

Thanks Atsutsa for your kind words and thoughts**

Atsutsa

@Denyce @ Pammi I'm glad to hear, as will others be, that you are both safe. Please know that all of us are crying and praying for Australia's animals and for the all the people. I think everyone in the world thinks of Koalas as the living "teddy bears" of the world and their loss - and any loss indeed - is such a tragedy. Blessings for healing, strength and an end to this fire.

Denyce

I was in the Adelaide Hills during Ash Wednesday in 1983. I never saw any actual fire but it was scary. Later found out it was across a small valley and only about 6 houses from me. We were lucky the wind changed direction. But that was only one day! I cannot even imagine the terror those affected are feeling, or the loss. Stay safe Pammi**

Pammi

Yes, we are fine at this time Denyce. We are on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and were actually evacuated in very early December when there was a huge fire heading our way. Fortunately since then this area has remained stable but you can't really afford to be complacent anywhere. ☺☺☺

Amen

Denyce

Thank you Pammi - are you safe?

Impie

Amen!

Pammi

Denyce, it is good to know that you are OK where you are. Our poor country is in a dreadful state at this time and I am hoping that you remain completely safe. ♥♥

Denyce

I am an Australian living in a southern suburb of Adelaide South Australia, and in absolutely no danger. But I thank you for your prayers for my fellow Aussies who are threatened with absolute horror. I am so saddened at all of the losses suffered - and the animals - I cannot say how I feel. It has been wonderful to receive such support and concern from Jigidi**

Pammi

Anne, it is heartbreaking to think how many of these beautiful animals who do no harm to anyone are being burned alive by these terrible fires that have defied all efforts to stop them in their tracks. The pictures we are seeing of koalas that have come down from the heights of their gum trees trying to escape the flames only to suffer serious burns when they are on the ground is so awful. It is absolutely tragic which does not take away from the suffering of all the poor families who have lost their homes with everything they own being destroyed as well. The TV news stations are broadcasting the progress of the fires every minute of the day and there is no relief in sight for the poor firefighters, many, many of them volunteers along with firemen from New Zealand, USA and Canada who have come here to help also. Regardless, the southern states are in a dreadful predicament and today (Saturday) is expected to be even worse that what has gone before. I wish there was some good news I could share but sadly that is not possible at this time.
