Always a risk


In most regions and towns here are these signs warning people of how high or low the risk of a fire is. Usually in Summer most of the country enforces a fire ban which means you can't light fires at all including incinerators and outdoor fire pits etc. Because we are now in Autumn the risk starts to get lower and the fire ban comes off around March - this photo was taken in Taupo last week while we were out for a walk.

  1. As the fire bans come off, our water restrictions get lifted too. Autumn is a good time of year :)

  3. I think we used to breathe a sigh of relief when we got through to Autumn - having said that it seems in Melbourne where our family are they've had no end of rain recently which is always good to keep the Fire Danger warnings low.
    Have a lovely day

  9. We have those signs (and those risks) here in the Pacific Northwest USA too. Hoping for a less dangerous fire season this summer.

  10. Never seen anything like that. In Finland they warn for fires is broadcasted in radio. And in The Net nowadays.

  11. I know that road like the back of my hand. Better in fact. I used to love travelling along it. Preferably on a warm day with the top down. Thanks for the wonderful reminder.
