I live in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, about 1 hour East of the Blue Mountains where the majority of the fires are burning. Though I feel I am far from danger, there has been a dramatic effect on the air around us. For a solid week, we've had a gloomy smoke cloud haunting us from above. Being so far away and having such an affect on the air, it's hard to imagine the effect on the Blue Mountains region. My prayers go out to all those who have lost their homes, been forced to evacuate, and the firefighters and Prime Minister Tony Abbott who are out there battling these fires. #bushfires
