spinifex: The temperature swing was crazy! Poor old garden plants and fruit trees don't know what to do with themselves. Some expert long range forecasters say next two years will be worse for dry windy seasons than the last two. Oct 25, 2019 7:43:47 GMT 10
Joey: When I was in brassy I, like everyone else would melt when the temp reached 30deg Since moving to CQ I'm perfectly fine with 39deg days still working outdoors. you just get used to it, plus its dry heat not humid heat which helps Oct 25, 2019 18:36:29 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - 3 days off yay - finally got my tinny registered - a few repirs and watch out fish & crabs - you'll be well fed! Oct 28, 2019 18:18:32 GMT 10
SA Hunter: 35c yesterday, 23c today & 7mm rain. Spring has arrived! Nov 1, 2019 21:50:49 GMT 10
milspec: Its been raining for a few hours now, yay! Nov 3, 2019 21:29:25 GMT 10
SA Hunter: We had a light drizzle, but it's cold and windy now. Nov 6, 2019 19:51:36 GMT 10
thereth: Hey lads, can i make a suggestion to assist with the ongoing costs of the server? Maybe create some affiliate links with places like Amazon and maybe a reputable VPN company, so we can use the links here and Ausprep could get a few $$ here and there... Nov 9, 2019 13:24:57 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi reth, could you send a pm to Ausprep about this? Nov 9, 2019 19:38:59 GMT 10
Peter: Hey folks. Nov 10, 2019 13:34:59 GMT 10
Peter: - I mentioned this a while back, but there were implications as to tax, etc. unless a legal entity was created for the forum on its own. I'll try to remember to speak with someone I know who works in this field... Nov 10, 2019 13:36:13 GMT 10
Chloe: My university is closed tomorrow due to catastrophic fire risks, also exams all canceled for me because of it. Got a catastrophic warning for tomorrow and requiring me to pack a bag and leave the house. Couldn’t imagine the panic on a large scale. Nov 11, 2019 13:16:59 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Yeah, pretty grim where the fires are - our thoughts & prayers are with all involved. Nov 11, 2019 16:37:57 GMT 10
spinifex: We now have a bad fire just west of Lincoln. Have already trucked our horses out 50km to get them well out of the way and our fire preps have been finalised. 60km Wind is expected to push it north towards our area later this evening. Nov 11, 2019 17:43:48 GMT 10
spinifex: The aircraft are doing a tremendous job under very tricky flying conditions. Nov 11, 2019 17:44:41 GMT 10
Chloe: All the burnt leaves and the strong yellow colouring of the outdoors has been strange, a very eerie feeling. Sending my thoughts out to everyone effected. I couldn’t have windows open due to the smoke around today, was bad enough Nov 12, 2019 23:05:58 GMT 10
spinifex: We have another Catastrophic fire day looming on wednesday. 43 degrees and high winds. And it isn't even summer yet. Nov 18, 2019 17:35:52 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - still away, expecting 43c & windy too. Looks ominous! Nov 18, 2019 19:05:02 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hit 45c at home, 80kph winds. And of course, to keep electricity supplied to the big city Adelaide, our power was turned off till catastrophic conditions ease!! Nov 20, 2019 15:49:19 GMT 10
spinifex: Interesting that the Adelaide Hills, also with catastrophic conditions, and many more large trees in close proximity to power lines, has had the power ON all day. I think calling our regions power cut a 'safety measure' is BS. Nov 20, 2019 18:11:32 GMT 10 *
spinifex: Had the genset running all day keeping power up to computers, phones, fans and fridges. Spent the late afternoon at the beach ... which was very refreshing. Nov 20, 2019 18:14:13 GMT 10
