Canberra 44C @ 1600hrs hottest recorded since 1968 (think they said), been too hot and windy just Nth a bit. With Southerly change coming thru very soon with possible thunderstorms, S-SE tomorrow not good and causing local fire concerns. Ready as I can be _ New fire rake handle knocked up, moved water around and pump ready but will be glad to leave it just waiting for next service.

Have done a lot of preparation work to reduce unwanted impact but can just watch out now.

Just saw this:

More than 180 alleged arsonists have been arrested since the
start of the bushfire season, with 29 blazes deliberately lit in the Shoalhaven
region of southeast NSW in just three months.
The Shoalhaven fires were lit between July and September
last year, with Kempsey recording 27 deliberately lit fires, NSW Bureau of
Crime and Statistics and Research data shows.
Police arrested 183 people for lighting bushfires across
Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania in the past few months.
NSW police data shows 183 people have been charged or cautioned for
bushfire-related offences since November 8, and 24 arrested for deliberately
starting bushfires.
Queensland police say
101 people have been picked up for setting fires in the bush, 32 adults and 69
juveniles.
In Tasmania, where fires have sprung up in the north of the
state and outside Hobart, five were caught setting fire to vegetation. Victoria
reported 43 charged for 2019.
Melbourne University associate professor Janet Stanley said
arsonists were typically young males, aged 12 to 24, or older men in their 60s.

“There is no one profile, but generally they seem to have a background of disadvantage, a
traumatic upbringing and often have endured neglect and abuse as a child,”
Professor Stanley said.

It just beggars belief, doesn't it! 🤬

Gotta love our Australian sense of humour, even under trying times. 🤣

No, that's simply an example of lies being taken as gospel.


24 people have been charged with arson in NSW.

Looks like KI is getting a bit of rain at the moment. Hopefully it helps them out down there!
There is not much of the island that hasn't been ravaged. They certainly need some help to stop it.

We have family in Bairnsdale, they are elderly and can't defend their property, luckily they are on the safer side of town but still had embers raining down a few nights ago. They have been packed up and ready to evacuate since Christmas. They said it is the tenth year in a row when there have been fires in the area.

They got a bit of rain yesterday morning, it helps but I don't know if it is enough to stop the worst part of the fires in the mountains.

Let's hope there is decent rain soon from the moisture the last cyclone pushed and the next one coming down now.
