Re: Awards and Cleaning Kit

Unfortunately it would appear that many fires here in Australia are in fact started by humans.  Problem has been exacerbated in most
recent fires by heatwave conditions, lack of rain and strong winds.

Interestingly some of the early German settlers who came to Queensland in the mid to late 1800's called it Qualsland, a merger of the verb quälen (to torment)
and land (has the same meaning in English) - so the land of torment, because it was so different from their home country.

Cheers Markus.

Re: Awards and Cleaning Kit

It is something how most of the recent huge fires in California have been related to public utility electrical transmission lines, not arson like it had so often been in the past.   Barron

Re: Awards and Cleaning Kit

Hi, powerline failures have been a problem here also, but unfortunately there are some people who are careless or just simply like to watch things burn.....

Thankfully the weather has now turned.  Rain has fallen with the remnants of a tropical cyclone hitting the area and Qualsland continues to live up to its old name neutral

Re: Awards and Cleaning Kit

Thanks Rich, some more interesting items smile

Snow still falling? 

It's only going to get to 33 degrees celcius (91.4 F) where I live today.  Our capital Canberra is looking at getting to 41 C (105.8 deg F).

Some parts of Western Australia are supposed to get 49 deg celcius tomorrow.  That's 120 deg F...  ouch!

Regards Markus

Yep, unusual. 

I'm usually scrambling to find a pullover if we stop in your neck of the woods.
