We have some good friends in the general area of southeastern Australia where the horrible fires (pictured) have been wiping out towns and killing people. (We just heard from them, and they are okay.)
Arizona and most of Australia have pretty much the same weather. We get miserable heat in summer that dries out everything making fires pretty much the norm. Some of our fires are bad, but it sounds like Australia is having a worse time of it.
Please send good vibes their way.
