Guys

Things are a bit tense down there at the moment. Tassie firefighting efforts are concentrating on towns/villages etc.

Matt lives just outside one of those little places near the top of a river valley so if any defending is to be done, Matt will have to do it himself.

His place is surrounded by scrub with only one way in/out along the river valley road.

Trapped if fire jumps access road behind so authorities might not even let him back in anyway and house might have to look after itself.

Have a look at the link. Matt's place is in the middle of the southern cluster of red danger signs.

Problem here is the wind is mad. I leave when the forecast gets silly and go back when it calms. Firefighters and giant water bombers are going hard when conditions allow, also helicopters with drop buckets. Like a war zone at times. Smoke is bad.

Got short paddocks around the house but a long driveway through dry grass and then one way in and out via a forested bush road.

Attached map shows that much of the Huon Valley is potentially under threat, fire is expanding and slowly travelling east towards dry grass paddocks and towns. This is just one of three or four major fires. Firies must be worn out, many are volunteers.

Most fires were started by dry lightning storm on Jan 15. Was more lightning last night, dunno if it started new fires.

Hope you can catch a break Matt and get a little of that rain to come your way, looks pretty hectic around you. Stay safe!
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

Have been at the farm clearing fuel. Already looks like it has been nuked as I've cut down flammable hedges and shrubs next to the house and thinned the trees. Some small trees have died and gone crisp so I lopped them. Grass around the house has gone from crisp to disappearing, leaving dusty dirt.

Don't think the fire will go anywhere soon but rain is forecast this week, they are actually doing rain dances at the evac centre.
