The fires seemed to have burned out for the time being, but there are still a lot of pine trees still standing. We have a Berg Wind again today so there has been another fire warning from the local firefighters. I think all the Vynbos shrubs that have been partly burned should now be cut level with the ground as they are so dry and can still burn. There are quite a few holes in the ground which look like Snake holes but they are where the shrubs used to be before the fire.

It has only been a few weeks and a lot of the vynbos is starting to grow back. We had a wake here for the firefighters that lost their lives during the big fire. The town was filled by Bikers on Harley`s and filled the main  road for most of the day. Last weekend was the turn of the Municipality and local residents, this was much quieter and smaller.

While i was gardening I heard these women singing in the distance and it sounded like a mass march but I was so surprised at how few arrived. The singing was very good and they were very well behaved even though they had to wait a long time to get their voices heard.

To show how ridiculous things have got, I will put a joke that was on a newspaper web site.

It is still very puzzling that 26 fires started in many different places at the same time. There have been some arrests for arson and theft from farms and buildings that were evacuated. The disappointing thing is that articles were stolen from the very places that were trying to help the victims of the fires. These were items like a coffee machine, pressure cooker, hot plates and other kitchen ware. This may cause people not to help next time we have an emergency.2017-06-27 22.35.05

I am still getting Hestony trucks parking outside with their refrigeration motors running all night. This time I was lucky a the Police agreed that he couldn`t. It was a restful night but I think the chicken in the back had defrosted a bit by the time he left in the morning.

I think there are going to be a lot of questions asked and accusations made after this fire. I got a very disturbing email from Thailand about how JZ is treating these areas now they have become DA, maybe Trump would call it fake news, only time will tell .

Two people with other problems on their mind.

At least the gale force winds didn`t come to this area.

The sun rises are looking a bit better now the smoke has cleared.

Still no reply from Hestony transport, except the lorries are more frequent since my complain to Hello Peter.

Today the weather seems very bad towards Cape Town. We have had a Berg wind for the last few days and my climbing beans are looking very wind blown. I had put a shield round them and give them a good watering. The sky is quite overcast today and we have a Velt fire towards Knysna which can be seen on the right hand side of the photo.smoke

As you can see, it`s also a bit dark here too. Not a good sunrise today.

bad day

As you can see, the problems in my last blog have only got worse. 🙂 We even had a power outage to add to this, but at least today we have water. 🙂

This all started one night two weeks ago when one of their refrigeration truck parked outside my bedroom window which is only 4 steps away from it`s cab. just as I tried to get to sleep the engine started up and carried on for over 15 minutes at over 80db which is louder than my alarm clock.

When the police asked him to move the truck he refused and this went on for the whole evening and until early morning.

This is the view from the SAPS across the road when I asked the Police to sort the driver out with his parking.  🙂

Just another moaning day, must be getting old. I`m going to try it on my Facebook.. page.
