    Damned if they do, damned if they don't. Another explanation is that the water bombing is covered by fixed wing aircraft, filling up on the mainland, as posted by W&KO earlier. It's reassuring to see the forward thinking associated with that.
    Im pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    We over look Fraser Is from our balcony and last nigh you could see 3 separate fires glowing. But late last night and this morning we are having a good bit of rain so I hope that helps out the firefighters. The Island is covered in cloud and mist right now so I can't see an smoke.

    Fires still raging

    It's a pretty clear day today so I can see Fraser Is pretty well.

    There was only a small amount of smoke this morning but it looks to have taken off again. I can't see any smoke on the southern end of the Island but from the middle to the north end looks pretty bad. I'm sure the rain radar shot is smoke and not rain.

    A news report this evening said that only rain could stop this fire, it went on to state that no rain was expected in the foreseeable future.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    I'm relying on my memory here but, with the fires on Fraser a few years ago, I seem to recall that Parks didn't open any of the affected camping areas until they were 'Greened up' again.
    Fair enough, too, I suppose.
    You blokes could have a bit of a wait, unfortunately.
    He who takes offense when offense was not intended is a fool, yet he who takes offense when offense is intended is an even greater fool for he has succumbed to the will of his adversary.
