Two of our sons live in Lithgow, ringed with fire.
The smoke is being picked up as rain on the weather radar.

 Hoping they and all come out unscathed, friends of mine were burned out in the Dandenong ones, they miraculously survived ok, but lost all and their neighbours

Just make sure your motorbikes are safe, (particularly the Beezas)!

Seriously, it looks horrible; best wishes to all involved.

Second fatality today. Just west of here. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/firefighting-plane-crashes-in-nsw/story-e6frg6nf-1226745835824 Very sad, but we are lucky not to have had many more.
RIP Mr Black.
