NSW Fires

The situation is getting steadily worse - and we are still two months out from summer.

A 300 km fire front:
Has anyone seriously considered that it might be turtles all the way down?
That's very old fashioned thinking.
The current model is that it's holographic nested virtualities of turtles, all the way down.

Re: NSW Fires

We live in north west Sydney. Last Thursday the sky was grey with smoke. The sun didn't get much of a look in by mid afternoon.

Temps around 36 degrees forecast today. Fortunately it looks like there will be no high winds like last week.

Here's hoping we can get through the next 3 days.

Re: NSW Fires

I understand your concern. In Southern California, any time that there hasn't been any significant rain for at least 60 days is referred to as Fire Season. And, as there are mountains covered with chaparral (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaparral) running through the city of Los Angeles, that can be a major concern, especially as Fire Season can turn into Flood Season with remarkably little warning.

BTW, there actually are four seasons in LA: Fire, Flood, Earthquake and Riot.

Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
