  3. Tasmanian weather set to get wild. (During the next century anyway) TASMANIANS can expect more intense rainfall episodes and more hot days and warm nights as the climate changes throughout this century, a new report out yesterday shows. The Climates Futures for Tasmania technical report on extreme events found that the effects of climate change on weather will vary depending on the region. "Extremely wet days will increase in the South-West and North-East, averaging up to seven days per year, which is about a 25 per cent increase," said the report's lead author, Chris White. However, the number of rainy days across the state is expected to decrease, with the greatest decline in the North-West. Dr White said hot summer days and heatwaves would get more frequent. "The number of summer days [warmer than 25C] is projected to double or triple in some regions. Some areas of Tasmania will get 40 additional summer days a year by the end of the century." The Climate Futures for Tasmania project, managed by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, is the State Government's most important source of climate change information at a local scale. Climate Change Minister Cassy O'Connor said the project was crucial. "The report outlines projections for extreme tide and sea-level events, severe wind gusts in a changing climate, and flooding in Tasmanian rivers," she said. "The report also includes information on coastal vulnerabilities and projected climate-change impacts on infrastructure, which is all essential information to be used for sea-level rise inundation mapping and in regional planning by local government." The report can be found at www.climatechange. tas.gov.au

    Wild weather and basic maintenance

    This one mostly goes out to those of us living in NSW who may have noticed that there's a bit of a damp breeze around at the moment! I've just spent the past three days / nights out and about with the SES tarping roofs and making good other storm damage and will probably be out again tonight as well. Many of the Requets For Assistance came from householders coming home from work to find water pouring through ceilings and down walls. Most of these were from genuine storm damage with tiles lifting etc but unfortunately a lot of others could have easily been prevented by keeping gutters clear! We're having the heaviest rain for 60 years so if your gutters aren't working at pretty near to 100% efficiency, they're just not going to be able to handle the amount of water being thrown at them. The wild weather is likley to continue for the next couple of days so please don't start clambering around up ladders just yet - but once things have calmed down, try to get all the leaves and other crap cleared away (or pay someone to do it for you) in readiness for the next bout of storms and heavy rain. It could save you big bucks!
  5. After relying on "Treats from Home" in Collins Street, Melbourne CBD for several years, it's good to know that British food, crisps are now available nearer to home (for those of us living in the Western suburbs). Chilli Red is a stall in Woodgrove Shopping Mall, just off the Western Freeway in Melton. It's owner got fed up with all the requests from poms for British food and decided to do something about it. As an Aussie, he's flying blind and is relying on his British customers to tell him what to stock. He seems to be very happy that if a British customer asks for an item not in stock, they keep their promise to collect when he puts in a special order. There's a web site too Chilli Red Food Company . As ever with this kind of outlet, Chilli Red's prices are on the high side. The import of UK foods seems to be limited to two or three wholesalers. I wonder if that's where the biggest profit margins are? However, the convenience of being able to buy Britsh food locally offsets the high cost.
  6. There was a pass advertised on TV last night, offering unlimited entry until 30th June 2009 to Wet‘n’Wild, Warner Bros. Movie World and Sea World for $49.95 for kids (aged 3 – 13 years incl.) and $69.95 for adults. For Qld residents only however; still, not a bad offer! http://movieworld.myfun.com.au/Tickets-and-Shopping/Q150-Pass.htm Jo x

  11. Dog saves woman from roo attack Article from: July 20, 2008 12:00am A WOMAN was saved by her son's dog when she was attacked by a huge, angry, 100kg male kangaroo on a farm. Rosemary Neal, 65, suffered facial cuts and other injuries when she was attacked yesterday afternoon while checking on horses in a paddock in Mudgee, central-western New South Wales. Her son Darren said she was lucky to be alive after being attacked by the male kangaroo - which he estimated as up to 2m tall and weighing 100kg. "The kangaroo has just jumped up and launched straight at her. He hit her once and she just dropped and rolled. My dog heard her screaming and bolted down and chased him off. "If it wasn't for the dog she'd probably be dead." Mr Neal said his mother was in a "bad way", but was discharged from hospital late last night. "My mum is 65 years old and about five and a half foot," he said. "Her face has been ripped apart, her hand has been mauled, and she's got scratches all over her back and concussion. "Her whole body is sore where she has dropped to the ground." He said Mudgee was overrun by kangaroos. "There would be a couple of hundred kangaroos within a hundred metres of the house, and last night she was just walking down the paddock to check on the horses before it was dark," he said. "A lot of kangaroos have just bolted, but the males don't care, they just stay laying down, they're not scared." When marsupials attack ... A woman's dog saved her from a kangaroo.
