    This is what has help start some fires......

    Well, some of the fires over the Fleurieu in South Australia, including a few dotted around where I live.

    The first is right above my property....I was on the way to get the kids from the bus stop and I only had my iPhone, so the quality isn't good, hence not in the Critique area......

    but, WOW, what amazing and beautiful clouds!

    Yeah, bloody lightning! We have one close by, but I am glad we are not anywhere near Pt Lincoln! Hope all is okay over there! They did warn Catastrophic conditions today, and they weren't wrong.

    I think we are all in for a bugger of a summer. Grass is long here, and drying out rapidly. In the bush there is a crackle underfoot. I hope all stay safe. And after going through what Pt Lincoln is going through now a few years ago, where the fires got within a kilometre from home, and day became night. I know exactly what they are going through.

    Yep, same 'round here. It's been calculated that we have some of the highest fuel loads in the state for this summer. Stay away lightening and idiots! One of the problems with lightening is that a tree, after being struck, can smoulder for days, and then cause problems.
    Trying to educate some people to be prepared and have a fire survival plan in place is another story altogether.
