November Heatwave and Bushfires

So it begins... on the Mainland, first South Australia, then inland New South Wales has been sweltering in temperatures touching forty degrees, and high winds combined with dry lightning have brought about dangerous bushfires already threatening homes. Even Melbourne recorded 38°C the other day, and it's still spring, not summer yet. Never before has the fire season come so soon... yesterday, bushfires broke out here in Tasmania, and burnt down several homes on the East Coast in a sudden fury. Pray!
