Default A busy night on the fire truck

Our fire brigade got a call out to a big bushfire at around 10pm last night, got back home 10.30am this morning. Slept through to 4pm and still feel shattered.

The wind down here was horrendous last night. Trees down across roads, powerlines down. Hit one tree across the road last night while responding - the headlights on the truck are pretty ordinary. Luckily not too much damage.

Ours was the western fire, mapped extent is around 3,400 hectares.


The eastern fires have been dairy country and devastating. I heard of one farmer who lost his entire 700 cow dairy herd and all this years calves.
