Dramatic prelude to a few anxious moments…

IMG_0216A dramatic sunset lit up the sky over the revegetation corridor at the Three Sisters in Flowerdale on Friday evening 15th of February. The heavy sky brought with it a tremendous lightning storm and about 2mm of rain to our thirsty landscape.

terry 066There were a number of lightning strikes in the area including the one pictured sending up smoke in the corridor at the back of the Three Sisters. This fire was called in by hang glider pilots flying off the Three Sisters and was quickly attacked by Terry Hubbard before back up arrived from the Strath Creek, Flowerdale and Glenburn Brigades. This was one of 3 strikes that kept the Hubbard’s busy – just what you need when you are hosting a National Landcare gathering!
