not the best day.............

What started off glorious had a bad patch............
The neighbours woolshed................
everything is so dry here believe it or not with all the rain in December we are so lucky this fire only burnt the shed down.
For those that know a wool shed these are the shoots (where you push the sheep down and out of the shed once they are shorn).........it looks very odd seeing them poking up in the air now..............

Catch you later..............

  3. Amazing how dry we are when it is so wet to the north & south. Fortunate that only the shed was lost.

  7. So glad to hear that the fire did not spread, look at WA fire recently, we have done a bit of travelling back and forwards to Adelaide over the last few days and side of the road are so dry with weeds, that a flick for a cigerette butt from a passing car could quite easier start a fire.
    So glad no one was hurt and all the animals are safe too

  14. Oh no - hope all is insured and thankfully no casualties. We had a conversation here yesterday about woolsheds burning down in the night(we were loading shed full of lambs for shearing)

  15. It is hard to believe how dry it is after all of that rain we had in NSW late last year. So glad it was restricted to the woolshed.

  16. How scary it would have been to see the fire happening..... curve balls being thrown everywhere and surprising everyone with what is happening around the country over there and here.....
    Take care hun.

  18. What caused it? If it were a hay shed, now that I could understand!!

  22. Oh no....so sad, but like you said, lucky that it didn't spread.

    Isn't it amazing how it can still be dry with all of the moisture just a few weeks ago? We have that problem here as well.
