We will still be having a white New Year, 10" of the stuff in my garden.
If anybody wants some, come and help yourself. No need to knock.

Calling for -12 on Thursday.

Here's what happened to our candles in the heat last week.
Not the thing to use for a romantic dinner setting.

No need to be embarrassed Brian, it happens to all of us now and again ;) :roll: :roll:

The crisis in Tasmania and SE Aus is now reaching our TV news. What a hideous situation. The BBC showed a woman who stayed behind when others had evacuated a village. She was frantically hosing down her timber shed of a shop & home with a 1/2 inch garden hose. There was no news whether her home survived. Where abouts are you Brian? Have you seen or been involved with any of the 130 fires current alight?????

Very grim news indeed for parts of Australia and Tasmania. Catastrophic alerts have been issued in the last few days, with severe risk to life.

http://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/live ... hits/23160

While some regions may see a slight cooldown in the next few days, The Australian Bureau of Meteorology have now had to re-define their temperature maps and add a new colour for temperatures above 50c ( 122f ). Sorry I cant find the link to that article at the moment.

Moley :shock:

Thanks for your concern SOT, fortunately I'm not near any of the fires, they are mainly in the eastern states at the moment.

Extremes of weather are just a way of life here, fires, floods, cyclones and high temperatures are all part of the nature of the place.
Part of one of our most famous poems reads:-
I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!

The three major causes of bushfires are people, people and people!
The next most common is lightning strike.
Its inconvenient but bushfires are a perfectly natural part of life here. Eucalyptus trees are full of oil and much vegetation requires fire or smoke to allow germination.

Another major problem is the bureaucratic plonkers who go into conniptions every time someone chops a tree down even if it is a threat to their property!

Others are self inflicted through building too close to forest areas.

And cut-backs in finance to pay for regular clearance of undergrowth (fuel)

It will always be a fact of life here and there are so many factors over which we will never have control.

But its a great place to live in spite of our political drongos.
:lol:
