I was relieved to hear rain on the roof at 5.30 this morning and the day dawned with misty drizzle which continued throughout the day.  No help in putting out the fires but at least it should stop them spreading.  Will be weeks before the fires are fully extinguished, and about 300 people are now working in the hills to dampen down the hot spots.  A wet weekend is predicted – not usually welcomed but this time it definitely is.
