A short note on the NSW fires

The situation is no better than when I last wrote about them, although there has been spots of cooler weather and some clearer days.

I made this gif to show how some of the fires near Sydney have spread over the last few days.

Ironically, I missed suffering from the smoke on one of the worst days because I was stuck indoors (with comfortable and effective air-con) for wholly unrelated health reasons (I’m fine – just basic robot maintenance).

If you look carefully, you’ll see some fire zones that are sort of thin and wriggly. These are mainly places were the RFS are conducting burning back operations in attempt to create strategic fire breaks to limit the spread of the massive conjoined bush fires.

Current weather forecast suggest there is little chance of major rain in the region until late January. So these big fires will be burning until at least then. The best they can do is contain their spread.

  1. Crossing my fingers for you guys for the upcoming week. It is going to be ridiculously hot here, but at least this state isn’t already on fire.
