Another terrible tragedy.(Forest fire kills in Portugal)

Another horrific tragedy, 60 plus people dead and no doubt a lot of wildlife killed too.

Yes it's terribly sad and tragic. You hear about these in the US or Australia, but never in Europe. I always feel so upset about the poor people losing everything overnight.

Yes, I heard about this too, Clumsy. Must be terrifying to see those flames coming straight at you and your home.

As you say, there will be all the nature, wildlife and their habitats destroyed too.

It's one thing after another at the moment isn't it.


On another pessimistic thought, I do hope this heatwave isn't the forerunner of anything . . . like earth tremors for example.
