Hi Judy,

Thanks for the concern. (I'll answer seeing as Alan hasn't yet).

The nearest fires to us are about 25kms away. Sydney is a huge city, and there were fires all around the outskirts and some of the suburbs last week. These are under control now, it's been raining for the last few days. The really big fires were in Northern New South Wales, nowhere near us.

We may not be that close to the fires but we can smell the smoke in the air.
