Vuvuzelas of Doom

Too good not to share. Thanks Lord MattressHammer.

Warning, I don't recommend drinking or eating anything while watching this. Well nothing you don't want to be cleaning off the screen or out of the keyboard anyway.


Coz posted about our fires but I wanted to show you all just how close we are. This is the view from the webcam at NAU - essentially the view out my office window (clicking may or may not get you to the current view...):

Google maps is being a pain and won't embed a copy of both of these layers at once, but this is the extent of the fire _yesterday_:

And this is 2 flags - the bottom one is our house, and the top one is where we were camping on Sunday when all this broke out...

Distance from that camping spot to the fire line? About 2 km.
