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.

spinifex: The aircraft are doing a tremendous job under very tricky flying conditions.

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

spinifex: We have another Catastrophic fire day looming on wednesday. 43 degrees and high winds. And it isn't even summer yet.

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!!

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.

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.

SA Hunter: Got my genset ready to go - but, can't find the key-turned the house upside down-nothing-grrrr.

blueshoes: G'day everyone, how are we all going? In Gippsland, it's "Summer" - 2nd December, 8 degrees and pouring rain...

blueshoes: SAH did you find your keys?
Dec 2, 2019 16:20:08 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi blueshoes - no luck!!

The 1500 white farmers losing their property in Sth Africa are being welcomed in Russia...these productive people will soon make the most of what is offered in their new home, and Russia will be the richer and better off with these proven hard working people who can make farming a profitable business...before long these farmers who are leaving without compensation for their land/business/vehicles/farm equipment, will be able to sustain themselves from the small plot of land, ranging up to/over 2 acres, and still have time to find a new farm to work/own/run into their future.
Our loss, as well as that of Sth Africa, will be Russia's gain.
Glad someone had the gumption to offer them a place to migrate to.
I love Russians almost as much as I love white South Africans and Rhodesians!! Will I get in trouble here for being a "Wascist"?
Russians, Rhodesians, South Africans; Independant, tough, self-sufficient, masters of improvisation, great fighters, loyal, straight shooters, look after their own! Everything Australians once were before we got ethnically diluted and raped by the Lefties and treasonous Politicians!

It's a shame that the South African government would repeat what is alleged to have occurred to their own ancestors to the intergenerational children of white farmers, I hope they can endure these times just as well as they endured hardships before and am grateful that Russia offered them land so that they may continue to reap what they sow.
But on the other hand I'm ashamed it had to come to Russia offering sanctuary, nobody should have to leave their homes whether they are white, black or yellow.
