41C and rising. It is not the heat I am worried about. It is bushfires.
So every year we try to make our place even more bushfire-ready. We installed more water tanks to have dedicated water for fire fighting. (We are entirely dependent on rain water, so water tanks are our only source of water during summer.) The fire pump is ready, and so is the generator (so that we can get the water out of the tanks).
Last year we had these corrugated iron sheets cut to size. We labelled them so that it is easy to put them on the respective window (bedroom 2, sheet 1, in this case) in the correct order. From left to right.Metal 'rails' were installed on the window sills
and above the window.
So all you have to do is grab the correct sheet, push it into the top rail first, then down into the bottom rail. Easy and quick.
Start from the left-hand side.This side is done. 2 windows covered. No flying ember and burning bits should be able to get through.
