First Fire Warning in Victoria

Goodness me, the first fire warning is out for this fire season. After last year’s February 9th desaster, new categories were created: “extreme”, “severe” and “very high” are the three new categories.

North Central, the region were Glenburn and our vineyard (Two Hills Vineyard) are located is marked as “severe”, whereas North east and Mallee are classified as “extreme”. Being far away from home does not help in such a situation. I will check the weather radar on my PC on a daily basis.

With the high temperature (38-39 degrees celsius) of the last days, I guess the land has dried out again. I was so happy with the rains we got in September and October which filled our two dams to the brim.
