There’s a good thread on the firewood forum about testosterone. You guys should chime in.
And no doubt you’ll endure the fires.

Video from Kangaroo Island fires


hope you chaps over east are out of the way of those monster fires.

im all good many are not & summers only just half over so this crap could keep going to April without decent rain..

i dont care much for seeing a prepared concrete wall color bond roof house for go aflame.. the wind blown embers are nuts im fully aware of this but its still nuts as all most impossible to seal all roof cracks and ember access..
Thankfully we got a big concrete wall roof bunker water tank if it ever was to look like going to ****.

Crazy thick smoke over Melb subs all today and yesterday will keep the populist thinking about the predicament should help keep them focused and prepared opening wallets,,, my local brigade got some $ but its never goin to be enuff

We had a tree bough down just across the road from us, it easily covered the entire road and into the verge each side, heard the crash, but thought it was the neighbors moving stuff, as they had been active on the weekend, then heard chainsaw, so went out and helped move the bits, we were heading out that night anyway, so I still got in trouble for running late, even tho we were going nowhere till the road was cleared :)

How did you fare with the heat, it really warmed up over your way yesterday, we got some good rain, 55mm or so, nice after it being 43 the day before.
