@telecrag and I are planning a rain dance tonight, hoping to drop 100mm on it by the time you return
Not as smart as you think. If you succeed, you might bet banned from alpine areas during winter.
@Kletterer will probably start whining about it being too wet
Pft, 4C and raining in Canberra is perfect weather.
Add or subtract 10C and I'm with you!
At this rate we’ll be lucky to get 10! Dance hard!!
Nah. Inclement weather on a construction site = pub time
Mnnn... more dancing obviously needed
I’ve emptied the pool from overflowing 3 times since yesterday morning. Must be at least 400 ml in total. Sydney.
OK @zac150, you and @telecrag can stop now
2 feel good things.
Disappearing diamonds and koalas.
Yay on both fronts. This summer can just piss right off.
Radio is reporting that they expect everything to be out by the end of the week.
Hopefully this signals the demise of the thread!
Yes!!!!!!!!!! Piss this bushfire season right off!
Never, ever again.
It has been said before but I’ll say again!
a massive thank you to all those who have given up their time to fight these fires and serve our community. Not just those on the front line but everyone who has played apart.
Someone seriously needs to get their rocks off!
Yep. That'll stop them.
I was out your way this morning, and noticed there have actually been a few small rockslips on the East side, at the bottom hairpin. Hope you don't get one of those big ones. Looks like an oversized game of marbles
Yeah, well... we’ve had no power for a week. Slides everywhere, trees taking out the powerlines in multiple locations. Mud everywhere (including through my laundry).
My backyard right now.......
In the bottom pic, you might be able to see the fallen tree being held up by the power line. If that line breaks, my shed cops the tree.
It might be another 2 weeks before Ausgrid gets to us.
At least the risk of fire has reduced.......
Oh gosh! Hope it gets cleared up soon, @Normo
At least 2 weeks before power can be restored. 90 houses being fed off the same set of wires with breaks all over the place, poles down , difficult terrain, water access only and urgent works required in nearby suburbs.
Ouch! Good luck with the clean up and insurance stuff.
Lucky @Telemark Phat lives on a hill by the look?
Yep roads, including Kosciuszko Rd, blocked by flash flooding in a few spots on the Monaro tonight, particularly between Berridale and Dalgety it seems.
I can’t hit the ‘like’ button for this one . 80% burnt .... terrible.
I think there is a message there...go back to France.
So the Tele has named it "Black Summer"
A great initiative. There is a solid chance many will not go back to grid connection.
Orroral Valley is officially out
Nadgee still burns
Good news - no more fires:
"For the first time since early July 2019, there is currently no active bush or grass fires in #NSW. That’s more than 240 days of fire activity for the state. #nswfires #nswrfs"
Scientists from the ANU Institute for Space have been awarded $1 million to build a satellite to measure forest fuel load and vegetation moisture levels across Australia to help mitigate the threat from bushfires.
The satellite – the size of a shoebox – will be able to predict where bushfires are likely to start and which fires will be difficult to contain.
Six new fire and smoke detection cameras that can identify threats behind hills and in forests will be rolled out across the ACT as part of the mid-year Budget update, docking the Territory’s bottom line by $1 million.
The Fairfax firepaywalled web sites reported the story about estimated deaths attributable to the smoke haze over the summer. For the ACT the statistical estimate was 31 deaths. We had a friend who now is part of that count. She was a boomer with asthma and found some difficulty with the Canberra smoke all summer. The smoke cleared but not its impact and she went to hospital four weeks ago with breathing difficulties almost straight to ICU but didn't leave, and passed away just the other day.
sorry for your loss
sorry to here that.
Im wondering if the summer of smoke might increase risks from covid19 for some.
She was a lot of fun, with a very colorful turn of phrase and quite a few happy hours over reds and Chandon went on with her and husband until well after dinner time.
In a kind of way our friend's situation was like a slow motion COVID-19 situation but hadn't thought of that connection, could well do.
Can't believe that's still burning after all the rain events we've had!
The pink lines were retardant drops.
The photos in the reports at the end of that page are not nice.
Not sure if I should post this here or in Day to Day NSW
(mods please move if need be).
Ventured out to the Hanging Rock lookout from Blackheath today. It’s really awesome to see how fast the bush is recovering...
