Happy New Year to All

Recommended Posts

Wishing you all a happy new year.

Looks like we are going to be starting the year off in the hot seat here.

Once it cooled enough to venture outside, our favourite dog walking spot was on fire. Seems even a reasonable urban barrier doesn't make you immune to the firestorms.

If you want to send some of that snow and water our way it would be very much appreciated. Best wishes to all on the forum!

Given our worthless dollar I was kind of hoping for pounds sterling.

Apparently home was the hottest place recorded on Earth today worse than New Years eve.

Thermometer1.jpg.540f6e87bde6a125704e99e40ecb0740.jpg

The entire garden and lawn was wiped out in just 10 hours.  I tried watering with buckets before the sun came up in preparation (Your not allowed to use a hose) to try help the plants last the day but they didn't. It was just a bit too much for a bit too long. Billions of animals have been wiped out and some species are believed to have become extinct. Yet we have Climate Change denier as a Prime Minister not even prepared to acknowledge anything other than this it just part of the annual fire season. The bizarre thing is that we are funding our own destruction. The three big polluters, China, India and the USA, as long as we keep buying their crap and shipping manufacturing overseas because they can do it on the cheap by polluting without restriction then everyone else trying to pull things back are all wasted efforts and we will continue to burn. Much of my research collection died with the rest of the garden so Im just a bit touchy today so forgive the rant!

Whoa! That's crap James, so sad about the plants. It's difficult to comprehend actually what you guys are going through. Whilst we, apparently, had the hottest and wettest summer last year, but there is no comparison to your situation.

On the plus side, my New Year gets better, I became a grand dad at 6.45am yesterday, but bugger me, it makes me feel old!😂

Being a bonus baby, as in "Bloody hell! Where did he come from? That's a bonus" I was an uncle at 13, my sister is 9 years old than me.

Sorry to read that James.

How close are the fires to you? Have you moved your cars somewhere safe?

My house is shielded from the fires being in a more urban neighbourhood so while I have a reserve behind my house its not large enough for it to be caught in any of the fire movement (Yet fingers crossed). The place where I walk the the dog that I pictured above as its a bit of an oasis bushland that was just a sizable bit of bush that made you feel you weren't buried in concrete was wiped out since that photo was taken. They didn't even fight it they simply let it burn as everyone was elsewhere.

So the cars are here, covered up with ash all over the covers.

Good to hear you have a little distance from it.
