Fires and Contingency

(Photo by Svein Gustav Wilhelmsen)
During the last weeks we have seen TV and read about the fires in Australia. Although the dimensions are completely different fires are always filled with horrible possibilities.
Last night several houses have been on fire all over the country according to the media in Norway, and values of many millions have been lost. Lucky no persons have been killed.

That gives a second scenario. What can happen when the Fire brigades cannot reach the place where their services are highly needed. Where hurdles are built up of snow and parked cars.For example in the streets in western Oslo. When will the city council clear away these fire traps.
The next photos are examples of the bad contingency plan regarding this challenge. Will they ever learn before the tragedy occurs.
We feel however safe and have our Saturday Cheese and Wine while relaxing in front of the TV and the Grand Prix (MGP) show from Ålesund on Valantines Night.

Hadde det kost i går du også ja ser jeg, til tross for endel tanker oppi hodet...

Mitt hode er helt tomt i dag, utmattet etter i går, mange inntrykk og masse kjærringer vet du.

Ha en toppers søndag Arne

Du får flytte tilbake til Ålesund. Der brenner det jo bare sjeldent (men grundig).

Koselig med ostebord. Her var det Grand Prix (Ålesund...), spansk ost (kjøpt i juleferien), serrano og chorizo,oliven, tapini og vin.

Da må det ærlig innrømmes at brannen i Australia glemmes. Det var trist å se på TV i går da de overlevende fikk se sin utbrente by.

Ha fortsatt en fin søndag!
