Arsonists should be strung up
« on: December 20, 2013, 05:42:54 PM »
Really nice to get a text message from the CFS at 10pm last night.
"Prepare your evacuation plan, there's a bushfire headed your way" (paraphrased).

Some absolute peanut had lit the scrub on fire on a 42C day (still 36 at 9pm).
It's not like we live in the bush, it's the suburbs i.e. hundreds of houses.
Lucky for us it was going south-west but could have been unlucky for those hundreds.
The CFS had it under control after a few hours but the worrying thing is that they had to use a water bomber.
Thank doyc that the wind was weak and the firies could get ahead of it.


Roll on summer eh?

No such problems over here, it's raining cats and dogs at 3C...

Our hottest time is Feb.. and there are going to be smokers throwing their butts of of their windows...
Cape Town get very windy and butts combined with that heat = instant fire.

They should be lined up in front of the advancing fire.. to 'feel the heat'.
'Sire, Sire!... the peasants are Revolting !!!'
'Yes, they are.. aren't they....'

You have to know the facts before you can distort them.

I grew up in bushfire territory as a kid so people who start fires were never very popular. Better than just fry them, make them work among the people who have to put it out and if they get fried, who cares ?
