The 14th Annual Songbird Remix Open Rendering Season Contest is now open! See the contest thread for details.
I am on the South Coast of New South Wales, not that far from where Stezza lives. So far we are safe from all these Fires From Hell burning up in the Northern parts of the coast of NSW and Queensland. Stezza is right - it is just crazy weather. A Polar Blast in Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, high temperatures in Western Australia and Northern Territory but extremely strong winds and heat fanning these tremendously dangerous and fierce bushfires in New South Wales and drought everywhere.
Boy-are we the "Lucky Country" or what. Just a typical summer almost.
See yellow road on the right, follow that up and I'm about 10mins away from Advancetown. The red area is the Lower Beechmont area that's being hit by bushfires. So far I'm safe but I have people I know who are not Couldn't open any windows yesterday because smoke was that bad.
There are other fires all around, but this one is the one most likely to effect me (unless of course another starts closer)
Great to see you are alright Rae, not knowing where you were exactly left us wondering how close to the fire zone you were. Hoping you survive the next couple of days that the prediction is for much worse conditions with heat and winds. They also said it was moving not only up to Queensland areas (which have suffered from this for longer than NSW, but also south towards Sydney bush areas.
People, you have to understand we are suffering from a long hard drought, perfect for bushfires. Alas when it does rain again, there will be devastating floods - the nature of the Beast
hope all goes well this week... @Rae134 you must be near Carrara .. how cool is that!
you must get a photo of the roadsign
today's weather sees a State of Emergency for NSW declared for the next 7 days... I see that fire fighters are coming from New Zealand, Canada and USA to help us out.
awesome... they do a great job, I was involved with comms back in the fires of 1991 and know how much they do.
today on remembrance day at my place is around 20c clear and dry.
I'm actually in Nerang, Carrara is kinda next suburb inland
I have a friend dropping in on her way to shopping for supplies, she sounded out of it as she's really close to the fires and is worried about tomorrow and is sick of hearing the waterbombing planes and hearing cars go past thinking the worst
Stay safe Stezza, you have lots of bush around you I think. If fire comes my way at Culburra Beach, the only road into Nowra could be cut as there is bush either side and dairy farming land into town. All that National Park bush around Jervis Bay area and outer is a worry.
At the moment it is calm, smokey-overcast and cool, but that could change when the wind picks up later like they forecast,
If I could figure out how to do it, I'd send some of our rain. It's been raining all day. And not lightly all the time, either. I have heard my sump pump activate a few times tonight while were were in the basement (finished basement with home theater setup). One good thing, it's melting all the snow that was still hanging around. At least, I hope it will be gone when I get up in the morning.
We had pouring rain most of the day too. It's supposed be nice and warm tomorrow, but it's going to drop down fast tomorrow night, and we should see some snow Wednesday morning. Hopefully, not a lot of accumulation.
