How many did you contribute ?

Any wickets ?
chopped on for 4, took 2 pretty decent catches at short cover. Built pressure with banter.

This is ridiculous! The apparent temperature at Thredbo Top Station is -19C! 6C in Canberra. Was about 3C this afternoon. Had to turn the heating on.

The smoke is still around here as well. Although it was sitting much higher than the past week.

And I'd love some decent rain.

It's dry eh ?

I got thrown off scent by the street lights - I didn’t think they had electricity up there yet.

I wonder how bad the air quality has to get before workers get told to stay home.

AQI at 441 in Civic at the moment, 600 in Monash.

I'm indoors and it reeks of smoke.

Its supposed to be hanging around until Tues/Weds, if it comes back again after that I think I might buy a mask. This isn't particularly helpful when you're getting over a cold.

The paper surgical ones certainly won't, though apparently anything with P2 or N95 on it will work. ~$10 for 3.

Its the PM 2.5 pollutant that you want to stop, and these supposedly block 95% of that if you wear them properly.

Uber dont pick up 5 year olds unless they are accompanied - hence why I got him a razor scooter for christmas so he can look after himself.
