Australian Fires

Post by Corjack »

The news on the fires in Australia seem pretty grim . I hope all of our Blaserbuds families are safe and well if they are affected by this catastrophe.

Yeah it’s not good, I have an 87 year old aunt and a cousin in a shelter, but at least they are safe. So many others are in far worse position. Geez we need some serious rain.

Bit cooler today in some parts and some areas are getting a bit of rain which is given the firefighter a little brake. But she is a long way from been over and with this rain comes lighting unfortunately.

Couple of pictures from our local park, the smoke haze is very thick. We are about 50km west of one of the first fires (still burning but largely under control) it burnt something like 37,000 odd hectares. Within a 200km radius we have something like1.5million hectares under various states of burning ( under control, watch & act and out of control), hence the dense smoke.

The only good thing is after all this fuel gets burnt it will give us 10-15 years to sort our collective manure out so this doesn't happen again.

You must be an optimist 🤔. Let’s hope you’re right 👍

I hope I'm right, it took 10 years for the Vic forests to recover from the 2009 fires.

Then again they apparently didn't learn a single thing from them.

They must have hired the same consultants the state of California uses .

I'm truly sorry for the losses due to the fires, and not quite sure if it works the same in other places, but here in Arizona those fires make the very best hunting places imaginable 2-3 years down the road and then for a decade or so afterwards.

I would agree if it wasn’t as hot and devastating as it is.
Not sure how long it will take to recover.
We had similar hot fires in tour alpine area and the bush now is impenetrable the large gums have fallen over and are still falling over . It is to hard to hunt and there a lower number of animals except wombats.
