    NSW bushfires

    From myself, the mods and the site in general, we hope AP members are safe and please heed any of the evacuation warnings if you are being impacted by the fires.

    Take care everyone!

    Having been through the 1994 bushfires in the Blue Mountains, they are as scary as hell. Stay safe, everyone.

    Anyone that lives south-east of any of these major fires should remain alert and aware on Monday and Tuesday.
    It mostly depends on the wind, though sadly I suspect some of them have not finished doing their stuff. The two in the Blue Mountains are just in the wrong place as far as homes are concerned. And there's no way they will be contained any time soon. Bugga.

    Given that today (Wednesday) is looking pretty awful weather wise, I'm wishing any AP members in the region all the best. Stay safe and if you have any doubts, make an early decision to get out. My thoughts are with you, cheers Deb

    I went through the evacuations late last week, was not pleasant!

    We actually watched a fire, that was deliberately lit, travel around 1km in a matter of minutes which ultimately ended up with us needing to evacuate. If we had of stayed an extra, say 10 - 15 mins we would have had to ride it out from inside our building as it jumped a 4 lane expressway. Scary as hell.

    Fires in our area have now been controled and/or extinguished. My thoughts are with the guys in the Blue Mountains, Lithgow areas.

    Stay safe!
