    A long way north of that, thankfully.

    My heart goes out to those folks in the path of nature's fury there.

    According to our resident Greens MP (whose vote means nothing in the lower house), Adam Bandt, bush fires like this are the fault of climate change -

    How can he classify this as Climate Change?

    It is one event, it is really dry, it is hot, and it is windy, and how do we know at this point that no one started them?

    Tosser for sure.

    It is just bad, shame how these things tend to happen in any situation really.

    I used to live in Norah Head, not far from there, know the area quite well actually - depending on the winds of course it could keep going further north before the winds swing back from the North West as Sydney again is up for 31 in to the week.

    So confused, they have been trying to prevent this, though they now deliberately linked them?

    - I wonder if this will make a huge difference.

    The Rural Fire Service deliberately combined the State Mine and Mt Victoria fires to reduce the fuel load on the ground and prevent them from joining the Springwood fire.

    The Greenies are to blame for this! not allowing sensible winter fuel-reduction controlled burns means when we have a season like we have just had - this is the outcome.

    Now, I will probably get flamed badly for saying this, but there are ways going forward to assure this cannot happen again. Simply, the Insurance Companies refusing to insure houses that do not have an adequate fire-break.
