    Covid and Fires

    Hi all
    Perth is currently in a 5 day covid lockdown (day 3). This is after 10 months of no community transmission and was found from one of the guards in the hotel quarantine testing positive.

    Yesterday, I mentioned after raid, I was preparing for evac from fires - just incase!
    In 22 years I have lived here we have been evac'd 3 times.

    The last 2 and a half days this fire has been burning.
    59 homes gone - 9000 hectares burnt!!

    This is the picture on the "warning map" as of this morning my time.
    Red = fire zone
    Yellow = watch and act
    Blue = advice level.

    The blue thumb pin is Tweedle and me.

    The weather today is forecast as 36'C and winds up to 70km/hr.
    Wind direction is everything.
    If it is easterly, which it normally is up until the afternoon - we might be evac'd.
    The land between the red area and us is mostly open shrubbery/paddocks with very dry grass.
    If the fire gets in that, it will move very quickly.
    Just letting you know what is happening here incase tweed and I need to go fast today.
    We are packed. It is a case of round up 3 cats into the carriers and put in cars with our already packed stuff and we are gone to my daughters place.
