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
SA Hunter: Got my genset ready to go - but, can't find the key-turned the house upside down-nothing-grrrr. Nov 26, 2019 15:40:35 GMT 10
blueshoes: G'day everyone, how are we all going? In Gippsland, it's "Summer" - 2nd December, 8 degrees and pouring rain... Dec 2, 2019 16:19:56 GMT 10
blueshoes: SAH did you find your keys? Dec 2, 2019 16:20:08 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi blueshoes - no luck!! Dec 2, 2019 21:02:25 GMT 10
twooldblueshoes: aw, rats Dec 3, 2019 13:41:53 GMT 10
gisbprepper: Hi All, Just discovered this forum. Hope to meet some like minded Aussie preppers here. Dec 7, 2019 9:53:11 GMT 10
SA Hunter: G'day gisbprepper and welcome. Dec 8, 2019 1:55:14 GMT 10 *
SA Hunter: 2.30am - just finished work - cold beer to wind down, then off to sleep - waking to 40c day with hot northerly winds. Dec 8, 2019 2:02:47 GMT 10 *
SA Hunter: Yay - 2 days off - hope you are all well. Dec 10, 2019 9:18:50 GMT 10
spinifex: Gonna throw some nets in? Blueys seem a bit hard to come by of late. Dec 10, 2019 19:05:57 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Not this week - too cold - going bush on the weekend, but next week will be in the 40's, so will try then. Got 6 off the jetty last week. Dec 11, 2019 8:58:26 GMT 10
stompfrog: Yeah next week won't be fun. Better to be on the jetty than in the bush... Dec 13, 2019 7:04:34 GMT 10
