hedda all those returning to Australia (including a good pal- a TV chef) have been quarantined for 2 weeks in 5 star hotels with all bills paid including 3 meals a day.

They are screaming Blue Murder (including my TV chef pal who moaned the Brit Airways flight back from London would have no in-flight dining..I told her to pick a couple of Harrod's Hampers..didn't go down too well).

Seems they were bused to the hotels, taken up in good's lifts 4 at a time (social distancing) by armed coppers and escorted to their rooms and told they could not leave.

Loved a top copper on TV last night saying about their 5 Star Moans.." all those 100s of victims who lost their homes in the bush fires were lucky if they got a tent to live in. I'm sure they'd have loved to be put up in the Hilton at State expense"
Barney Declared over at last - after 6 months of burning; including a wilderness area the size of South Korea.

33 dead, 2,500 homes gone - and 1 billion (plus) animals destroyed.

Largely because Australian summers are lasting twice as long - due to climate change.

Next - what precautions should be taken before next summer...

Barney Now contained, the bushfires destroyed c11 million hectares - over a 6 month period.

Between 1 and 1.5 billion animals are said to have died - with dozens of human fatalities.

And c3,000 homes burned. The overall cost to Australia is said to be in the region of A$5 billion.

The conundrum now is - how to prepare for next year...

Barney After 6 months, the bushfires are out.

Peaking at 150 fires - in and around New South Wales - they had a firefront 3,500 miles long.

Bringing death and destruction.

Barney Reservoirs around Sydney have received - over the weekend - as much rain, as they did for all of 2019!

By next weekend, most of the bushfires should be extinguished - although half a dozen are still deemed uncontrollable.

Floods - next. And much fewer tourists next year arriving to witness these alarming quirks of nature - now an annual event.
