Today was sunny but windy in Dunedin with 27km/hr northeasterlies. 70% humidity. The high was 25°C, low was 17°C.
We had the Fire Service turn up around 3pm because a neighbour decided to burn rubbish in their backyard despite it being hot, dry and windy with a complete fire ban. I think most of us were relieved to see them turn up because their ‘little fire’ did not appear very well controlled.
