Another bushfire yesterday in the Blue Mountains between Springwood and Blaxland. Two schools had to go into lockdown because of the fires, but by late yesterday afternoon, all students were able to go home. It was a scorcher yesterday with temperatures reaching 40°C or higher depending on the location. The residue smoke is drifting over our suburb at the moment. We then had a power failure in our neighbourhood for over an hour about 6pm. Luckily we have a gas cooktop.

Smoking is now banned in all NSW national parks to help prevent bush fires and reduce litter. Any person caught littering with a lighted cigarette can be fined $660.00. If littering a lighted cigarette occurs on a total fire ban day, the fine is $1320.00.

Must be ok on the edge then!!
Our friend Faith (who we spent New Year's day with last year ) is a big big smoker!!
her house backs onto national park in Yarrawarrah!! So lets hope she's not chucking her ends over the back yard.
Mutual friend keeps saying if she doesn't pack it in, he'll be flying her back to S.A. sooner rather than later (he works for shipping company at Sydney airport, which amongst other stuff, repatriates dead bodies!!)

Our third scorcher of a day in a row. Today's forecast is 43°C in my area and it's not summer yet ( well it's only have 2 or 3 weeks away). it's already 25°C and it's 8.30 in the morning, 7.30 if it wasn't daylight saving time.
