{Fire and Flood} and some baking too

We had intended to spend some time in the Warrumbungle National Park, but the recent fire made us put those plans on hold.  The picture above is a screen capture from the RFS app called Fires Near Me NSW and shows how much of the Warrumbungles have been burnt out, nearly all of it.

If you have an iGadget of any kind and live in NSW or have family in NSW you should get this app.

Then earlier in the week I thought we could go to Dorrigo National Park over the long weekend instead.  It wouldn't be too hot and they have not been affected by fire, we even called to check.  Great!  At that point in time the weather forecast looked good too.

Yesterday we spent the day baking biscuits and bread rolls.  There was dancing while we baked and general merriment.  The children were excited about the trip and kept telling us all the things we might see and do....

...then I saw the update from NSW SES.

Major Flooding rain as cyclone Oswald passes by.

Fire followed by flood...We are staying at home instead.  
At least I have biscuits.

  1. Such a shame that mother nature gets in the way of us enjoying her. Stay safe and dry.
