This is what the pyrocumulus looked like from Maffra Golf Club at 4pm:



.....looks just like it did on Black Saturday from this perspective.

Currently remains at 43C here with steady NW'ly, heard there is 11 aircraft on the Stradbroke fire (its burning where trucks cant get to).

Next few hours with the change immenent will keep the alerts going right through to midnight if the black Sat experience is repeated. Good luck to all farmers out in that region.
