    Hope everything’s settled down by now Daisey but I read that the dry conditions haven’t improved and fire bans will continue. You’re right about the shared fire fighting crews helping out around the world when these disasters occur. Not only as a means of training but also to reinforce the front line and give the locals some respite. Things have cooled off a lot down south here (mid 20s this week) and we’ve been spared the floods from up north, but we’d sure love some of their rain- it’s still really dry and a return of the hot weather would put us right back in danger. I grew up right here on the farm I still live on. In my lifetime we’ve been spared a major fire but back in the ‘40s a bad one tore through here and destroyed many homes and the school. In more recent years I’ve watched flames and smoke fill the horizon on pretty much every point of the compass (I live on a hill and can see from Melbourne to the forests along the Victorian Surfcoast). It’s a horrible thing to smell smoke on the hot summer wind when you live in one of the world’s most fire prone regions.

    But Daisey, are you OK? Bush fires are all too real a summer risk for us, but I thought you guys were spared this crap https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/11/new-zealand-fire-burn-weeks-march-wakefield
  3. True. When Bruce was including all those Australian covers on the 2014 tour I really hoped he’d include at least one by Paul Kelly. Or even better, a duet!

    That’s a record I’m quite happy for you guys to keep! however... almost exactly 10 years ago, here in Geelong, we sweltered through a 47.6° day. Even the memory makes me sweat.
