Dogs, Flowers and Fire Bans.

20131102_192125

Dogs find something interesting to have a sniff at. I think it’s a blade of grass…

The weather has started to warm up a tad and the temperature today was 39c. but a cool change is on its way and it should cool down for  day or three before climbing back up again. The official Fire Season will being on 10th November and continue through until Mid-April. When I took the dogs out for their evening walk the wind had started back again. The Man was having some difficulty and after a little while I lifted him up and placed him in the dog sling for a bit – at least until he got his breath back.

Thre are still about 40 fires burning in NSW but the  State Firefighters can manage that and our Firepeople have come home.

This must be the worse state in the world for colds and flu and really, it’s not all that surprising. Not when you consider the serious flucuations in temperature. Yesterday it was 39c and hot – the temperature collapsed overnight and today it’s a very cool 24c and the wind started last night when the sun went down. Within the span of a 24 hour period the temperature climbed back to 38c  today and tomorrow will be 40c. A total fire ban has been declared in some areas.

One of the things that irritate me is the inability to edit something once posted. I don’t mean this post,  I mean comments made. I have gone through a comment to check that everything is ok – and it seems to be – but the very second you press the “post comment” button a glaring error jumps out at you. But then I suppose when you are commenting on a page that has 5500+ followers, one comment probably wont count for much – but still…..

A friend is travelling in the  Northern Flinders Ranges and sent some photographs of the wild flowers.

Tomorrow I take the Man back to the vet.

    • The trouble with this place is that the temperature can drop within the space of a few hours. Tuesday 34c / Wednesday 39c/Thursday 38c – then on Thursday afternoon a cool change swept in from the Bight, the temperature collapsed and it’s been raining all night. At the moment the temperature is 22c.

  3. Thank you. The “Bushfire” season has not really begun yet. This I fear could have been a warning. The Man is still a cause for concern and I take him back to the Vet today.
