Power went out around 2.30. Still out for the entire area. I knew I shouldn't have test ran the generator this morning.

By the sounds of the bang just before it went put a transformer went bang. I blame the weather

Was in Yarrawonga Tuesday morning, and it was pelting down up there - back home later that morning near Echuca and the road was barely wet :(
We've swapped from the camper to a van yay! :)

42 on Friday - thats abominable weather for fires...


Quote
Temperatures are expected to climb above 40 degrees on Friday as the state heads into the summer peak.

Following a balmy start to 2019, Melbourne is forecast to see the mercury rise on Thursday to 28 degrees before climbing to an expected 42 degrees on Friday.

Senior forecaster Rod Dickson said north-westerly winds were dragging heat from inland, causing a day of extreme heat.

"The maximum temperature depends on the time of the cool southerly change," Mr Dickson said.

Yep, we were heated off at 7.40. Will be happy to get home and monitor the fire app with all preparations ready just in case. Not good out there
