it’s official, the fire season is here. heard of a couple small ones last night, i’m sure there are more.
Yup, it’s here until we get the first good soaking which is still several months away.
Last week we had one of those “dry” lightning storms come through here, the ones with a lot of thunder and lightning but almost no rain. The drops that did fall were huge and only enough to pockmark the dust. But luckily I don’t think the lightning started any fires, at least not that I know of, and the sky is blue. They let most of the backwoods small fires burn since the terrain is inaccessible anyhow, but fight the big ones and the ones that are near human habitation.
Jo you say you heard a couple last night, how close were they and how big is a small one?Its not something we Brits know a lot about.What do you hear?
i was out working and the calls came across the scanner, both were just north of town, and less than an acre each. one was from a campfire the other… both were contained and didn’t get a chance to spread. if it had been windy that could have changed easily.
Sorry Jo but what is a scanner a radio of some sort? They are not in common use over here amongst the public apart from for musak , we are all close enough to one another to be able to shout a warning
a scanner is a radio that “scans” across different frequencies/channels such as police, fire dept, ambulance, etc. things are a bit spread out in these parts.
