Forty three degrees Celsius = 110 degrees Farenheit

That is the prediction for Sydney tomorrow, with humidity in single digits.  Total fire ban for NSW starts at midnight.  Swathes of the State have been declared a “Catastrophic” fire risk (or as the public service announcements state, unusually for such a laid back country, “YOU WILL DIE”).  I think we are only at “Extreme” fire risk where we live (“YOU WILL PROBABLY DIE”).  At the local shopping centre, there is a hall bearing a sign saying “This is an official place of last resort”, which I think is a truly wonderful sign to have!  I hate that I can hear the neighbours doing things like chopping down bushes and watering stuff, it makes me feel like I should be doing something, but if I start I won’t stop.

Shark attacks, bush fires, summer has finally arrived.
