Picture of the Day 31: Watching the Dog
Sax learns a couple of new tricks from Jesse, the helpful dog. Or is it handy dog? Whichever, Jesse is very, very helpful. Bring me breakfast, Sax!
This heat… it’s like being under house arrest. Get in the car and without AC, having the windows down is just pushing hot air around. Sax feels the heat more than I do, we can’t go out. It’s all excuses! But what can we do? T-T
We did go for a swim, which was nice. Mum and Sax walked close to sundown and still sweated up a storm. The NSW fire danger rating has gone from nil to extreme in a matter of days. We have a few fires around here, nothing as serious as Victoria or Tasmania. Anyone in severe bushfire zones, our thoughts are with you. Just do what you have to. Let’s never have another Black Saturday.
Well, being in an extreme fire danger rating zone has made our options for the next few days quite interesting. The rural fire brigade announced today that if local temperature tomorrow is over 40 degrees again (which is forecast) and the winds are over 80kph (forecast around 30kph), then our fire rating will go up to catastrophic. However the winds are said to blow from west northwest, and the major fires here are south and southwest. So we should be fine here. But really, where do we go? Unless we leave the country for the season, there isn’t anywhere we can be in civilisation and avoid it.
Bushfires, bushfires, give it a rest!
Here’s my mother teaching Sax how to type:
And then he escapes with a quick headbutt:
But is subdued again and forced to listen to Andre Rieu:
Seriously, not kidding about the last one.
What’s your bushfire survival plan? Do you stay or do you go? And if you go, where? Let’s compare notes. 😉
