    Oz fires

    Hope all on here and friends / family are safe. Is crazy how large parts of the country seem to be under siege.

    Thanks Ravi. Certainly a challenge for many. Area about the size of Belgium has been burned so far. And the end is nowhere in sight...

    And close to 500 million animals and birds estimated to have died in those fires. Tragic really.

    Re: Oz fires

    From tiny little UK it is very difficult to envisage the areas being devastated, thoughts go out to all those affected.

    Re: Oz fires

    Copy that leigh.
    I deal with heat and drought here and wildfires on occasions. Mirroring the hopes of all being safe and that man and critters can find refuge as well.
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    Re: Oz fires

    I spent yesterday evening with a cousin of my wife who lives in NSW, he is wondering if he an his wife will have a home to return to, the flames are getting close.

    Most striking to me was a photo sent to him by a friend, 10am and totally dark due to the ash. Dark days indeed.

    Re: Oz fires

    I saw a tweet from some local Aussie guy saying how this is basically happening because individuals can't burn the bushes like they did back in the day, when they presume it's time. He claims it's all government regulated, environmentalists and all that, so now no bushes get burned and then the summer season comes around and this happens.

    I'm leaning towards believing the guy, the governments busybodies love crisis like this, now they can find more "work" to do more "environment" to protect etc.

    But I just hope everyone stays safe, hearing people losing their entire properties, watching fire slowly creeping towards your safehaven and just engulfing it forever is just horror.
