I remember a while back there were a couple of scenic postings of the view from some board members house, and since mine is somewhat interesting at the moment I thought I'd share a couple.

Being summer here, we are very much in the middle of fire season and it's a hell of a big one brewing throughout the state.  That means when the wind changes we get a hell of a smokescreen across the city.

I think Rombles also had a few big fires out his way in the state next to ours.  If you're still with us Rombles nod twice!  Any trouble out your way?

Anyways, to illustrate how bad it is at the moment, I thought I'd post a few pics I just took of the view from my roof.  Very creepy, but also kinda cool [if it wasn't for the devastating fire that caused it of course...]


Some news on what's going on for those interested: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=164653

So anyways, here are a couple of pics.  Bear in mind that the closest fires to me are quite a fair way away, at least a good 100kms, and you get the idea of how bad it must be to try and fight these monster fire fronts...

I kept the pics small for ease of use, but you can probably follow the picture's link to find the bigger versions to really appreciate how nuts it is...

Dean...in that first pic...if those power lines and the roof of that house weren't there, it'd look just like some weird medieval landscape!

Yeah that's a big church a block down from my house.  The biggest around for quite a few kilometres.  The whole place is crazy because you'd have a great view of the city from my roof, but you can't even see it.  I'm about 15 kms away from the City Centre, and the view's quite nice, well would be if it wasn't for the trees...

I'm just glad I don't have bad hayfever at the moment.

Here's some alternative, not so impressive pics I took before the batteries up and died...

Wow!
Doesn't look like Santa's gonna be able to squeeze his fat ass down the chimney in that second pic Dean...

What city do you live in again?
I forget.

I can just picture Santa delivering presents in OZ.
"Jeez Rudolph...it's hotter than Satan's breath here Down Under.  Ho Ho Ho!"

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
