Here we go again

Last night the Sth Gippsland Hwy was blocked and traffic diverted as no less than 3 fires had been started. This ment that I had to get home via the long way around.
Today a phone call from a friend in the CFA told us that he had spent all day yesterday and today putting out fires in our area.
Apparantly the fires yesterday were started by some kids lighting a handfull of matches and throwing them out a car window.
Will this madness never stop.
I hope they catch them real soon. Boy do they deserve a smack on the bum.

Oh my goodness!! This is just crazy! I thought the fires were under control and now there's more just from people and kids being stupid. I hope that things start getting back to normal and that you get some rains there quickly!

Unbelievable to be still lighting fires after all the devastation that has occured.

Hope the weather has been kind to you over there today, as the warnings were out for more strong winds. The west coast of South Australia banned all children from going to school yesterday because of the bad conditions.

And where are the parents of these kids that are lighting the fires? They need more than a smacked bum especially if they are older kids that should know better.
