Qld Fires

Post by goldcoast tiger » Mon 26 Nov, 2018 8:11 pm

Happy, Only found out today , about the Fires around the Gladstone and Bundaberg regions,
Hope they’re all out as soon as possible and without any tradgedies.

I was up at Gladstone about a week and a half ago with my Sons job , and there was burning off along a huge amount of the highway,
Sounds like it would be a lot worse if not for the backburning earlier.
Hope it sorts itself quickly mate and doesn’t get any worse

Why didn't you let me know you were up my way ya great galoot , would of shouted you a drink :D

Conditions eased today because winds had dropped off , but about 40 houses have been burnt out at Agnes Waters and they evacuated Miriam Vale which is about 60 km's south

The heat on Sunday was unbearable , about 37 and 70% humidity

Brother in Law has a gated place at Agnes and it was under threat and also a cattle property near Bororen on the Highway

Could of been far worse , we had about 4 inches of rain with the storms and that about the last two weeks

Hopefully we will be alright , we are about 600 metres from any serious scrub and the winds will hopefully turn SE Wednesday /Thursday

They needed the help Ink and we all appreciate the help , poor old firies were out cutting another van load of backpackers out who forgot which side of the road they were suppose to be on

2 hours cutting them out and the poor buggers they collided with at 100km/h Sunday arvo
