TUESDAY THE 8TH
The RFS sent me 3 text messages and a home phone message last night reminding me of possible 'catastrophic' conditions today (as the fire boards at Exeter and Bundanoon point out). The message contained the advice, 'not being in a bush fire prone area is the safest option'. This was not an evacuation order. I applaud the RFS for their thoroughness... It's bloody hot now and there are forceful westerly winds (12:30pm)... So many fires are burning in NSW currently. My thoughts are with those affected and the firefighters looking out for them.
