That ain't no *disco* inferno

We're a third of the way through spring, and already we're hitting temperatures that would be a respectable mid-summer day. Tomorrow has also been declared a Total Fire Ban day in our area. That's probably nearly unheard of, especially given the large amount of rain that we've had over winter.
I think I'm going to be a busy boy this summer. The bush around our town last had a bushfire through it seven years ago, and there's a regular seven year cycle of major bushfires. We're due for it. As this is my first summer as a qualified bush firefighter, I'm a bit twitchy about what the continued hot, dry weather may bring. Here's hoping it's not too horrific.
