    Freyamum your right. The same thing happens with a bad storm too. We wont get any warnings, then we get a bad storm with no warnings. Then for the next few weeks we get serious warnings almost to try and make up for missing the nasty storm.
    Either way Im happy to be prepared and ready to leave. Instead of getting caught off guard and unaware.
    Thursday was an example of how fast things can happen in hot weather and strong winds.
    Hope everyone stays safe.

If anyone around here needs stuff, rouse hill bunnings have told me that they have a lot of stock in terms of hoses etc.
    The wind is picking up here too, as predicted.
    I worked 12 hour shift on the fires last night. East and South of the bell line and darling causeway junction.
    Is that anywhere near you

    Yeah,. I agree. I would rather have warnings and everyone taking it really seriously - than not and things go terribly wrong like in Victoria and Tassie.

Weather, bush, it's unpredictable even for the experts. I'd much rather the hassle of evacuation that turns out to be unnecessary than get stuck in the inferno. But then I'm not a bush person the trees around us even make me nervous of fire today.
