I LOVE A SUNBURNT COUNTRY

I DO LOVE LIVING IN AUSTRALIA..OF COURSE I HAVE LIVED NOWHERE ELSE AND HAVE NOTHING TO COMPARE IT TO BUT THINK I WOULD STILL LOVE IT NONE THE LESS..

LIVING HERE OF COURSE IS INDEED TO LIVE IN A SUNBURNT COUNTRY…IT CAN BE UNFORGIVING AND HARSH .

LIKE ALL PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN A RURAL SETTING I RUN THE RISK,THE VERY REAL RISK,OF LOSING ALL TO BUSHFIRE.

ALREADY SYDNEY HAS HAD FIRES AND AS I TYPE QUEENSLAND IS HAVING TROUBLES WITH FIRES ALSO.

EVERY SEASON I PREPARE A SURVIVAL STRATEGY..IT IS NOT MORBID,IT’S NOT DOOM AND GLOOM IT IS A PART OF LIFE IN THE BUSH. TO THINK WE ARE NOT VULNERABLE IS INHERENTLY STUPID..

IN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO I WILL START TO ACTIVATE THIS PLAN.IT IS A PLAN THAT IS VITAL TO NOT ONLY OUR SURVIVAL BUT THE SURVIVAL OF ALL OUR ANIMALS.

THE SUMMER SEASON IS PREDICTED TO BE A BAD GRASSFIRE RISK..RAINS HAVE ALLOWED GROWTH OF GRASSES AND THE UNDERSTOREY IN THE FORESTS AND WHEN IT DRIES IT DRIES QUICKLY AND TO A CRISP.

THE SUMMER OF BLACK SATURDAY THE GROUND SOUNDED LIKE WALKING ON CHIPS..FRIGHTENING.

I AM CURIOUS AS TO WHAT YOU ALL DO TO PREPARE FOR WEATHER EXTREMES WHERE YOU LIVE.

BUSHFIRE,FLOODS,TYPHOONS,TORNADOS ALL THESE EVENTS HAVE A SMALL WINDOW OF ACTION.

I WILL POST A BLOG WHEN I HAVE DONE MY PLANS AS I SAID THEY ARE QUITE FULL ON AND INVOLVE A LOT OF WORK AND LOGISTICS.

I  LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING HOW YOU ALL ORGANISE YOURSELVES AND YOUR PETS FOR A CRISIS.

PERHAPS WE CAN SHARE IDEAS AND INCREASE EACH OTHERS KNOWLEDGE..IDEAS SHARED MIGHT EVEN HELP SAVE THE LIFE OF SOMEONE..WE MAY COME FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES BUT MOTHER NATURE AFFECTS US ALL IN SOME WAY WE ALL LIVE ON A PLANET THAT CAN SOMETIMES CRUELLY REMIND US OF OUR VULNERABILITY.

HOPING YOUR WEEKEND IS SAFE AND REWARDING FOZZIEMUM
