Fire!

Well, that was exciting

I was smelling smoke, and thinking "Gee, there must be some bad bushfires about today, to smell that much smoke".  I wasn't paying it much heed.

Then the doorbell went.  It was about time for Julie to get home, so I was pleased - although the dog wasn't making as much fuss as one might expect.

but it's JJ * at the door, telling me that there's a "bit of a fire outside - do you have a hose?"

* It wasn't really JJ, it just looked a lot like her, and my brain immediately did some heavy cross-association confusion

No, I have no working hose, I've got a bucket - chuck the  dog in the bedroom.  So, of course, I ran to the shower to get the bucket from there.  No bucket.  So I run out the back, and grab one of the buckets from there.

All good, the fire is around the electricity pole out front.  Two bucketfuls is enough to extinguish it completely.  It was suggested by the passers by (who were attending to it without much success) that it was probably from a cigarette.  The pseudo-JJ woman was driving past in her car.

A little excitement for the day!
