Yes, it's very sad to hear about the massive fires there. I hope they can get it under control and we as a whole can figure out a way to stop this, as well as other environmental tragedies that are going on.

It's very devastating to hear what's been happening in Australia. Fellow Australian members, I hope you're ok and sending good thoughts your way.

Thanks folks. It has been pretty nasty for the people who have been threatened by these fires and the totally inadequate response from our idiots in charge. A fair bit of rain is forecast this week for part of the affected areas so we can only cross our fingers and hope it puts some of these fires out.

We had a big amount of rainfall over the weekend, at least where I live. Would you believe that some of the areas that suffered huge fires were then flooded. And all the ash run-off from the fires flowed into rivers and turned them toxic so that huge numbers of fish and other animals died. This is a monumental disaster that will take decades to recover from I think (if ever).

I heard the rain has only limited our capacity to back-burn and it has not actually helped with the broader situation. Things are absolutely dire here and we have a government composed of climate deniers...Australians on the whole are not progressive enough to vote for their best interests.

Ain't that the truth. It is depressing knowing how many people could not care less about anything apart from how much money goes into their own hip pocket.

Things getting any better over there? Unfortunately, our news cycle here has seemed to get over reporting on it, so it's all Kobe and impeachment over here.

Sorry for being completely out of topic..but when you mentioned Kobe...

Once I was a basketball fan (a Lakers fan) and Kobe was my favorite player...so RIP to him and all who've been in that helicopter.

We had a dump of rain that helped temporarily but temperatures have gone right back up again and we're back to the hot, dry weather, and there are plenty of fires still burning - especially bad around Canberra at the moment. There have been fires in areas that are ski fields in winter which gives you an idea how unusually hot and bad it has been. The forecast for this weekend coming up is pretty bad.

Three American firefighters that came over here to help died a few days ago when the plane they were flying crashed. All the other planes were grounded as a result until they can work out what happened.

I think its just going to go on and on all summer long until we get some consistent rain and lower temperatures.

I am so sorry, too. We are living in a different world, and I constantly send positive thoughts to all those suffering these fires in Australia. I have been following this the best I can. Thank you for the update.

Some good news at last is that we have had torrential rain here over the weekend, so a lot of the fires have been contained or burned out. On the other hand people with beachfront houses have been getting flooded. There is certainly something to be said about the wisdom of people building houses almost at water level on the beach but perhaps now isn't the best time.

But the rain got me personally via a leak and we've got soaking wet carpet in the bedroom and stained ceiling in the lounge room downstairs. I'm currently running a hair dryer non stop trying to dry out the carpet. Not fun. 😠

Well at least I'm glad to hear that you've had some rain to help the land to heal. But sorry to hear about the leak, I know how you feel (of course not that bad) but I'm for example dealing with very cold temperature at my house and not even the small heater is helping. Waiting for a warm spring!

It's the one extreme or the other obviously...and yeah it doesn't sound like fun Ed...certainly won't be if you need to wearing boots in the leaving room..I just guess about that.

Friends from Europe always complain about how cold and poorly insulated our homes are in Australia. Very few homes have central heating so when it's cold (by Aussie standards) it's usually the same temp inside as it is outside....I generally wear a warm jacket, socks and ugg boots when inside during winter.

A cold house isn't fun. blck if your heater isn't doing the job, perhaps you should buy a slanket! 😂

ohhh´come on klaw....be honest ... have you ever had a day or a night in your
life when it was below zero degrees celsius ? (of course holidays in the mountains
don't count)
i tell you what...i didn't turn on the heater for a singel day in 5 years now...
i swear ! and we had some days with around -10 degrees celsius and below here
in the winter😂😂

please don't take me too seriously but i am enjoying myself heartily
when i think about you wearing a warm jacket, socks and ugg boots at
15 degrees celsius outside😎
that reminds me of when i was in los angeles in winter years ago. it was 17-18 degrees outside of cause i was wearing shorts, t-shirt and flip flops when i was walking down a street when a guy came up to me who was wearing a thick down jacket...i couldn't help it
and had to lmao ! i will never forget it 😂😂

Definitely not! It can get down quite low overnight in Sydney but nowhere near zero!! However, with this extreme weather we've been having, who knows!?

I'm a complete wuss when it comes to the cold. My circulation is really poor so my hands and feet get cold very quickly. And it's definitely TOO cold to be wearing shorts, t-shirt and flip flops at 17-18 degrees 😂

Ha-ha...yeah I know what you mean mate, even though I'm in South Eastern Europe the winters are quite chilly here...or at least they were..-15 to -25°C in the winter have been something quite usual 10 or so years back...and now in the present one I don't think the temperature ever gone down bellow -7-8°C and very rarely snowing anymore...like 3,4 times for the whole winter.
Have seen on the street a couple of times guys even wearing shorts lately so...

But I'm like you very rarely if ever turn the hitter on and usually when there's other people in the apartment who insist on that😉

Yeah, I assume it's because they've expected to enjoy the hot weather there😀 so it's maybe have been a kind of unpleasant surprise to them..😀.but if it's about someone from UK or South Western Europe like Portugal and Spain in particular they don't really have experienced much of the rest of the Europe weather in the winters.

Yeah the temperature in our apartment often matches that to outside as well klaw and it's not fun as you've said when it's about minus temp-s but I've not been even bothered to 'introduce' the thick socks still...that wasn't necessary at all this last winter so I'll save the slanket money for now😉

of course klaw that is different for every person. with poor circulation and constantly cold hands
and feet it is no fun when it gets a little colder outside. i can't stand it when it gets too warm, whether in the apartment or outside. temperatures over 27-28 degrees in the summer and
no wind really kills me.
that is probably the reason why I immediately jump into my shorts and flip flops when we have the first warmer days here in march-april.

oh ha mate i'm sure that -25 degrees was definitely not a lot of fun.
but it's like you say the weather or the seasons have changed a lot over
the last 20-30 jears
when i was a child we had a few days or even weeks with snowfall every year
and way longer cold periods. today we have at most a few days on which the
termometer drops below zero and there is hardly any snow anymore.

but there is no man-made climate change ... noohhhhh....(ironyoff)

yes i was there 20 years ago ... at the time my sister and her friend worked
there for 2 years and i was visiting them but only for 4 weeks and
that was way to short. i only saw san diego, los angeles, monterey, santa cruz,
and san francisco...it was a lot of fun cruising down the pacific coast highway...
but too much to see in so little time....

I came on here to see how things are doing over there. Our news is very much condensed with the potato for brains actions and decisions( or lack of) our Prime Minister, J.T. what a goon this dude is .
I'm happy to read that things are getting much better over there, aside from klaws cold extremities and Ed's leaky home. sorry to hear fellas . Things will turn around for you soon I'm sure .

My goodness it seems like you have accurately described exactly what is going on here at the moment too! We've even got a paranoid, racist, anti-immigrant, ex-police, senior government minister called Peter Dutton who looks like a potato. Google "Peter Dutton potato head" and enjoy...

Anyway in seriousness the weather had been milder for a couple of weeks so no major new fires to report. I think I fixed my roof leak and painted the stained ceiling but even though I bought the exact same colour paint you can obviously tell which bits I patched. 😒
