I see that 2022 is off to a good start (for some Australians, anyway):
People in the path of a bushfire raging in Perth’s leafy western suburbs have been urged to leave if they are not prepared to actively defend their homes.
The fire is burning in dense and dry bushland at Bold Park in Floreat about 10km west of Perth, near City Beach.
Of course, the fire also drives before it mice, snakes, spiders, etc. so it’s not just the fires the Aussies have to deal with.
