A gentle reminder – Canberra bushfires

Posted by jerry on October 18th, 2004 — Posted in Journal

The few spots of rain and the lowering clouds are a welcome sight over Canberra – then we crested the hill and saw the colour of the cloud – not pure like rain clouds, but muddy, like over-mixed oils on canvas – smoke hangs once more over Weston Creek. There is of course no forest there now, just plain hills and weeds and a few skeletal trees not yet removed. And the windrows – the remnants of the forest sketched in charcoal across the landscape. It is not yet Summer, and light rain is forecast for the next few days. Time for some fuel reduction burning. A gentle reminder.
