Alert.

What a week……………….bush fire is still burning on my boundary with NIGHT CAP National park.

A lightening strike on Tuesday night is the suspected cause. So far 80 hectares have been scorched, the same size as my block here.

Helicopters continue dumping water for the second day.

I have packed up my papers and photos and have stored them in pipes under my access road. The cage is ready to evacuate the hens.

Valley full of smoke. My nerve pain is still inhibiting my walking which makes it a little difficult to keep checking the progress of the water bombers, I have to climb quite high up to get an overall view.

And headline news at mid day. A suspected bomb was found near the Council Chambers and Commonwealth Bank in Mullumbimby at 7 30 am, about the same time I was due in town but postponed my visit due to the fire emergency here.

  2. Hello dear Don

    I’m sorry to hear you are still in pain. Do ask if there is anything I can do to help. Clear air at this end of the valley, only a kilometre away. Higher perhaps makes a difference. Little Mullum the site of a bomb scare! TRaffic was diverted from 9 am through till 3pm at least, those were the hours I went through. We have Nadia and Greg here on Sunday, continuing with our bush regen. One of the only good things to say about this dry weather is it is easy to get ahead of the lantana.

    love
