It was like raining black leaves because the fire was further west of us, where we are here at Malua Bay.

I'm going to do exactly the same thing as I did the first time. I've got the gutter plugs in. They'll be left. I'll take all the dead stuff out of the gutter facing the bush, because the front one's clear. This one, I'll scrap it completely dry again, get every leaf out of there. Fill it up with water again. Hose the roof down again. All the external windows, deck and go." THE WEBBIES WALKING IN BURNT BACKYARD
