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.
