an update..

This Map shows the fires that are burning around the state.
Fire is spreading in one or more directions. Effective control strategies are not in place for the entire perimeter.

Whole of fire perimeter is behind identifiable control lines. The fire is not out, active fire may be within the perimeter. Firefighting activities continue to extinguish the fire. The fire could breach control lines under difficult weather conditions

Fire is at a stage where firefighting resources are only required for patrol purposes

The red triangle in the middle of the map is the fire that has been worrying us.. But as you can see from this sky-shot today is a much nicer day, weather wise. It has started to drizzle as I write this. So fingers crossed people, that the drizzle turns into rain and helps our firies out..

cheers kim xx

edited to add.. the fire is now contained and it is still drizzling.. yay

Thank goodness, I don't have to scare the neighbours with my version of a rain dance. It's cooler here in Adelaide too. No rain yet.

I would do a rain dance, but given that my somewhat larger body than it used to be now wiggles in unexpected directions when doing the rain dance, there's no telling where the hell in the world the water is going to fall. So, for safety's sake, I will refrain from shaking my booty on your behalf. I will, however, go into my 'rain trance' and send good rain vibes your way. OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMM. Get your wellies out.

Yes - rain would be good to help put the fires out! We get many fires here in the US - none near my home, but many in Utah and California and even Florida. I hope you stay safe. See you soon - Kellan

Good golly! I don't watch the news so had no idea there were so many fires burning over there. Glad you've had a change in weather.

That's rather interesting - are they under control now?

I just ran a Tassie quiz, by the way.
