I dont know about everybody else but with the sheer number of fires and some of them being very large already , you get the impression as soon as a shocker day ( 45c+ and 80kph+ NW) winds comes along things will get dicey in alot of places at once , though coperburg says they have ample resources i reckon when they all make big runs  the RFS will be swamped.  fires like the blue mountains fire tie down huge resources and thats just one fire and by no way the biggest , just in a dangerous position.

ps thanks dave , it was quite a site , volcanic. looks like youve got a little CAPE about on Sat up north , maybe west of you , maybe more fire starters?

Hi Nick,

I guess when they become overwhelmed, it leads back to who is most important in property to save:)

Very impressive fires - certainly taps the atmosphere sufficiently to be affected by shear.

Where is the rain?

I was at the Wallaby Rocks fire , south of mudgee yesterday. itt created pyrocululous , sent up a weak storm and then lightning started a new fire 2km south east of containment lines , was getting exasperating for firefighters out there.
