Gotta Love an SA Summer.

11 Years living in NZ and the hottest day I got was 32.5.

A fridge stocked with Cricketers Arms Pale Ale, a few bottles of Rawson's Retreat and gallons of Adam's Ale will see me through.

As we said in the 1980's - Don't get water up your nose

And that's the other thing about wind speed. It may only be forecast for 26kmh, but when a fire gets going, it creates its own wind. Pleased the land around the shops has be mown and I live away from the scrub.

Two weeks ago was just the teaser for what is to come this summer.
