A strong Northerly rather than a strong northerly.

good grief she's got more things to worry about that capitals!  My daughter does similar things to me Gay as my gramma is shocking.  Looks to have died down overnight so I hope the hot day doesn't bring things to life again.  We were in Ballarat only week before last.  Had to work and couldn't get the internet to work properly at all.  I'm pretty sure it was a tad cool also.  What a difference a few weeks can make.

Thankfully, this one is SE of B'rat & I'm at Miners Rest, sort of NW the other side but have no idea if other members are being or could be impacted. Play safe if you are Exclamation


Thanks furious Thumbs Up & to clarify, my " Ummm Confused Confused Confused" refers to the comment from djebel which is exactly what I wrote & is unedited.
We've been generally cool to cold for many months but way below average/needed rainfall so combine this with arsonists lighting a fire on 3 fronts & this is the result Angry

looks like only a shed was lost, no houses or human lives , but no doubtplenty of wildlife were either injured or killed.
Why on earth would someone light a fire for fun, when caught, someone should set fire to them and see how they like it. Makes my blood boil

I feel the same P O P .   If they catch the fire lighters they usually turn out to be kids/teenagers ( most of the time ) and nothing ever happens to them, which infuriates me.  Make them go work , helping those impacted by the fire, and do some work around burnt and injured farm animals and wild life, instead of a slap on the wrist.
Maybe if parents were held more responsible for raising idiot children , they might think twice before they breed.
animals before people.
