Just received a text from our friend in Albury, Victoria, Australia and the fires are lest than 50 miles from him.  Heard from another friend in New Castle NSW and he said it Has been as hot as 126 F in Grawin, NSW near lightening Ridge.  He said things are so dry and they have all their water reserves ready to calm the fires in Albury.  Pray for them!  Both said the rains are very spotty and don't cover much of an area.

One of the regulars on ACMOC (antique Caterpillar) in Albury / Corryong had the fire burn most of his property but saved the buildings and a lot of livestock. With daylite was going to get a better idea of how bad it really is. Not taking it lightly but if feed is short and you have livestock you tend to clean up the lite fuel near your buildings it helps save them. And being a Cat guy he had a few dozers to help. Much better chance for a country boy than a city breed and raised looking for peace and quiet.(just for you OT,I didn't say citydot)

That a lot of acres burnt, heart goes out to y'all, we in the northern side of the globe are heading to winter so we forget your just beginning summer, I sure hope your drought breaks soon.

"Bad analyses always promote bad remedies! Blaming rising CO2 concentrations and global warming is only misdirecting real efforts to minimize wildfire destruction. What Australia and the world needs to address is 1) human ignitions, 2) invasive grasses and 3) fire suppression that allows surface fuels to accumulate and enable large intense and destructive fires to wreak havoc like never before!"

My daughter sent me this link and its a bloody good read. Basically its saying that some of these fires were avoidable. Also the Aborigine's knew that this management approach was not the right way however their words were not heeded and now everyone is suffering accordingly. I bet this is never made public.
