Moorland Fires


BBC Latest

Hopefully nobody's too close to this, but it is certainly getting rather large.
It’s actually starting to get a little smokey, here in Little Lever, and we’re a fair ways away.

Take care if you are affected. Stay safe.

Get some spuds chucked on!

In all seriousness though, I think these types of fire in the UK will get more frequent, its bone dry out there, the whole place smells like "abroad", if you get me (And I love that smell if I'm honest).

Personally though, I hope this weather stays around for a while yet, I'm loving it!

round our way, all the grass has turned from green to hay/straw yellow. Can't remember that happening before.

They’re estimating the Winter Hill mast should be going out of service fairly soon.
That's our Freeview telly done for, then!!
Hopefully I can teach Mum how to use the TVs built-in internet functions to stream everything..

You can see how close the fire's getting to the Winter Hill mast, now. (The big stick at the top!)
Apparently, fire crews are targeting this area, to ensure telecommunications aren’t disrupted.
Never occurred to me that the mast is essentially the hub of all telecoms in the area, including apparently some internet stuff.
If I go offline over the next short while, this'll be why!!
