As I am a volunteer in a non-operational CFA brigade here in Shepparton, I am in the ICC (incident control centre) on standby with the high fire danger. So far it has been good as the wind speed has been low, although it is starting to pick up now. Radio chatter from across the state as the odd fire starts but nothing to concern us.
Police and ambos are also here including a ....wait for it.......ambo hottie who was here earlier! She obviously realised she would not be able to resist me for the entire day so she left earlier! That's my story and I am sticking with it!
Looking forward to stepping down from DEFCON1 at the end of the day!
Good to see you are concentrating on the important things bender
Was just looking at the radar,lot of lightning strikes up around swan hill-mildura way.lets hope nothing comes from them.
Keep up the good work bender
can sleep safe in my bed tonight knowing bender is on watch.
There are concerns regarding lightning. Storms have developed but seem to be slipping by well to the south but things are rather laid back here...like coiled springs!
May be out on a hot date tonight with ambo chick whilst AWOL has a false sense of security!
Don't go putting the aftershave on just yet bender.Looking at the radar that front is slipping down past swan hill and starting to follow the river down towards our way,give it an hour or 2.
That was fun!
Yep...your timing was about right! As Yoda would say, "The fan, sh!t will hit"! But here is the thing...it hit when we were having tea...pizza! So yeah, we weren't too concerned! Storm front comes through...starts multiple grass fires in the area but we were so lucky the rain band came through and extinguished them.
Of course resources had to be responded including aircraft. Some, if not all aircraft had to return or divert. I heard some radio traffic from a helicopter I think saying that the fire was visible and going well but he was not going anywhere near it because of the weather.
The idea may have been to approach from behind the thunderstorms and tackle the fires if rain missed them. That is my interpretation of what I overheard. I think next time they may be staying on the ground and waiting for storms to pass then go! They do use caution at all times and today tried something before abandoning the plan.
Heaps of powerlines down across our area and trees. I had to avoid some debris on the drive home. As nothing got to any decent size we were not involved. It also just dawned on me I forgot to get hot ambo chicks phone number!
Goin' it alone again tonight!
Certainly was plenty of lightning around before the wind & rain hit.
You wouldn't of got me up in any flying machine in that no matter what was burning.
Still plenty of limbs lying around today,including one over a car at baringa i seen this morning.
Apart from fishing I was doing volunteer work at the local RSL, my other passion is sh*tstirring Rod Bender cheers davo
