Summer fires in Sicily – Common sight these days

Fires during the summer happens everyday and planes going back and forth to get water from the sea is a common sight these days. Most fires are started by the locals here as many do not understand that the soil is very dry and fires also moves under the soil and can start in totally different part later even if you extinguish the fire. People throw out their cigarettes from the car and creates fires by the roads and people burn their soils under high risk periods of the year. Last year we had to start a fight with our neighbor to make him understand that we do not want him to burn his soil during the summer time as he can not control the fire. We had to threat him with a police report to make him stop. This year he has not started a fire….yet.

Br?nder under sommaren h?nder varje dag och flygplan som g?r fram och tillbaka f?r att ta upp vatten fr?n havet ?r en vanlig syn dessa dagar. De flesta br?nder startas av lokalbefolkningen h?r, eftersom de inte f?rst?r att marken ?r v?ldigt torr och br?nderna r?r sig ocks? under jorden och kan b?rja p? en helt annan plats senare ?ven om du sl?cker elden. M?nniskor sl?nger sina cigaretter fr?n bilen som skapar br?nder p? v?garna, och m?nniskor br?nner sina markar under h?ga riskperioder p? ?ret. F?rra ?ret var vi tvungna att br?ka med v?r granne f?r att f? honom att f?rst? att vi inte vill att han ska br?nna sin jord under sommartiden eftersom han inte kan kontrollera elden. Vi var tvungna att hota honom med en polisanm?lan f?r att f? honom att sluta. I ?r har han inte startat en eld …. ?n.

Chestnuts Sicilian Style

In Sicily they use old metal bins or gas containers to smoke chestnuts. Below the make a small fireplace and then above they have a food holder to smoke the Chestnuts. The food holder is inside, in the top of the chimney. Or you can make a second door in the middle of the chimney and use as an oven.
Chestnuts made this way are also very good a snacks with red wine.

Svenska

P? Sicilien anv?nder de gamla metallh?llare eller gasbeh?llare att r?ka kastanjer. Nedanf?r g?rs en liten eldstad och sedan ovanf?r de har en math?llare f?r att r?ka kastanjer. Den math?llaren ?r inuti, i toppen av skorstenen. Eller du kan ocks? g?ra en andra d?rr i mitten av skorstenen och anv?nda som en ugn.
Kastanjer gjorda p? detta s?tt ?r ocks? mycket gott snacks med r?dvin.

Got a call from Sweden “Etna is having an eruption!!”

Woke up this morning when the phone rang and it was a call from my parents in Sweden. And a call a sunday morning is not good news, so my stomach flipped. But this time they were worried because they have seen on the news that Etna had an eruption and media has created some strong headlines. Even if I live just by its foot, I have not heard nor felt anything even if the window was open. Normally it sounds like a long distance thunder storm.

Well, Etna has eruptions very often and that is good. This one was quite small and has created some problems for the air traffic and the airport was closed some hours. Last year with an even bigger eruption, the airport was closed three days. So why media have written about this little Etna story I do not know as the second photo shows the last big eruption that happened in February this year and the lava streams came quite close and made the locals worried. And not a word in media…so?

This morning: some smoke development. / Eruption Feb 2013.

Denna morgon: lite r?kutveckling.??????????? / Utbrottet Feb 2013.

Svenska

Vaknade i morse n?r telefonen ringde och det var ett samtal fr?n mina f?r?ldrar i Sverige. Och telefonsamtal en s?ndagsmorgon ?r inte goda nyheter, s? min mage v?nde. Men den h?r g?ngen de var oroliga f?r att de har sett p? nyheterna att Etna hade ett utbrott och media har skapat n?gra starka rubriker. ?ven om jag bor precis vid dess fot, har jag inte h?rt eller k?nt n?got ?ven om f?nstret var ?ppet. Normalt l?ter som en l?ng distans ?ska.

Tja, Etna har utbrott v?ldigt ofta och det ?r bra. Detta var ganska litet och har skapat n?gra problem f?r flygtrafiken och flygplatsen var st?ngd ett par timmar. F?rra ?ret med ett ?nnu st?rre utbrott, var flygplatsen st?ngd tre dagar. S? varf?r media har skrivit om denna lilla Etna h?ndelse jag vet inte eftersom den andra bilden visar det sista stora utbrottet som h?nde i februari i ?r och lava str?mmar kom ganska n?ra och gjorde lokalbefolkningen oroliga. Och inte ett ord i media…s??
