    Summer has come to Oz early this year, and will increase the chance of more bush fires, this summer.

    bucksube saidPattison, that sucks. I know you guys are in a terrible drought, which seems to have lasted forever. Those Eucalyptus trees burn like an oil rig.

    I remember standing on the banks of a river in Alice Springs. The signs warned of a drowning hazard, which seemed silly, since the river (even at that time) had been bone dry for 7 years.

    I hope you get plenty of rain this year!


    Thats the Todd River I think. I used to walk across it at night time, as where I was staying was on the other side, and one night I was chatting with the mate I was with, dark as fuck it was, and I was told shut up, as Aboriginals we sleeping all around us.icon_eek.gif

    GQjock saidCut the complaining .....
    Try having that from June to October
    BTW don't you guys use Celsius?


    Who's complaining. I was just saying; albeit I'de be even more happy if it was pissing down with rain.

    Yes indeed we do use C down here and not F. But just as many Americans have trouble understanding Australian English, I'n sure if I said it was going to be around 36C today many would not understand either, and it's just about 8:00AM, and it's already warm.

    Kind Regards.

    I remember touching down in Melbourne in the midst of that crazy heat wave in February this year (the same week as those epic bush fires) - the pilot announced that it was 6.30pm and 46' C (about 115 F). Everybody on the plane just laughed...

    The flight down from Sydney was intense - we could see smoke plumes from above the clouds, and there was an eery red reflection on the wing of the plane from the burnt sunset sky.

    It didn't dip below 35'C (even during the nights) the whole time I was there...I spent just about every evening after work in my hotel's rooftop pool.

    Those fires got to be only 20 minutes drive from my home, and I live in a greenbelt.
