Thanks for sending it over Dave.
We've had several hours of good soaking rain today with plenty more forecast over the next few days. *:)*

The remaining fire areas are now all under control.
The "state of emergency" declaration has been withdrawn.
There are still a few "hot spots" (mainly tree roots burning underground and the like) which will take a few more days to deal with.
The New South Wales and Victorian fire crews have started to return home.

Wildlife is even coming out from wherever the hell it found to hide. :shock:

Image

The cost so far counted is 32 homes destroyed, around 100 farm buildings destroyed, innumerable animals killed, around 60 people injured, but zero deaths.

The land will recover.
The people will rebuild.
The boundless appreciation for the heroes of the Country Fire Service and the South Australian Police will be higher than ever. _O_
The CFS firies are all unpaid volunteers.

Image

Thank you for all your words of support over the last six trying days.
That's all folks. ^O^

Whew! What a relief...!

OK, tell Abbott that'll be £777,777 Sterling [ex VAT of course] for Metaphysical Weather Support Services. :Y

[I'm sure his Zionist cronies have got that sort of money lying around in cupboard drawers and old suits.]

So, you took Dave's rain, but didn't want any of my snow, ey!? :roll: :(



Kidding aside, I'm very glad you're okay, Fish. :)

I mentioned it to Tony.
He said your cheque is in the post. :roll: :lol:

And Dahls, next time try putting the snow in a waterproof container, not just in lots of those little Post Office envelopes. Must have cost heaps for all the stamps. :P :lol:


Thanks again guys.

Thanks Dave.
It took a long while to get here but it finally arrived.

Image

We've been having a "bit" of a weather event in South Aus over the last few days.
The most severe storms in over 50 years have dumped half a year's worth of water.
Winds of up to 140kph and an estimated 80,000 lightning strikes have wrecked 22 of the states major power line pylons used to distribute electricity around the state.
One of the larger power stations was put out of action by lightning.
The interconnecters to bring power from neighbouring states have also been damaged.
All this of course, trips the whole system to shut down.

Image

Here in my part of Adelaide we were without power for only about 6 hours, but some parts of the state are still working to restore it after 3 days.

Australia is the driest of the inhabited continents, only Antarctica (surprisingly) gets less precipitation.
And South Australia is the driest of the states, so we are not well equipped to deal with this amount of rain.

There are still flood peaks making their way down the rivers and creeks, bursting their banks as they go, and causing extensive damage to the downstream communities.

Image

My place is in the foothills and out of reach of the flooding but there's still some wind and rain damage to be repaired, so please be a bit more patient.
I'll be back as soon as I can. :shock: :P

Oh, and Dave, no more of Manchester's bloody rain, please. *:|* :P


This is such a lovely little walking path too. :(

Image

A final couple of thoughts.
1/ All this water is only going to encourage the growth of a bumper crop of bushfire fuel for the future. :shock:
2/ And the absolute worst thing is that some of the stupid climate-change denying politicians in Canberra are blaming this whole thing on our "rush" to use renewable energy.
FFS, it doesn't matter if you generate your electricity by wind, solar, gas, coal, nuclear or fairy dust, if your power lines are blown away you're just not going to get any electricity to the end users. :T

Eeek! That's not good... *:|*

All the best to Fishy, and everyone else on the wrong side of all that water.

Still raining.
Still windy.
But nothing even close to last week.

A bit more tidying up around the place and I should be good to return tomorrow.
Can't give enough praise and admiration to all the emergency services. Legends. _O_

Thanks for your good wishes. :D
