Cooney Creek

Our property is not all undulating grass- and woodland. It transforms to become a mini-gorge with a small creek flowing through it. There’s hardly any flow in the creek at the moment given the drought of the past few years.

Bushfire started by lightning

We had a small bushfire (wildfire) which was ignited by lightning during a storm. It was a cool and drizzly day so, thankfully, the fire didn’t get too wild (we have a lot of woodland). Some unknown person saw smoke and reported the fire to the Rural Fire Service (RFS) who attended and ensured the fire wasn’t going to spread too far. The first I knew of it was when the RFS came up to the house some hours later to tell me about it.
