The Hume Highway is closed in both directions and I’ve been receiving emergency warnings for fires to the south of us.
When I walked Kita out for his business I saw fire engines racing south, lights flashing, and a police car speeding north.
The dust clouds can be seen blowing in the gusty winds under the amber lights. There was actually some rain a little earlier. Big, heavy drops that did nothing but stain the car further.
Should we evacuate? The car is packed but the roads are closed. I wonder if our journey will continue south tomorrow.
