IN FO­CUS Wild sum­mer weather across the west

to feed them. For the rest of the day they bark or cry. Shame on the own­ers.

Thumbs Down

to Coun­cil’s ex­pla­na­tion in last week’s Dubbo Photo News about the up­keep of our city’s ap­proaches, parks and gar­dens. No­body is talk­ing about irrigation or to­tal fire bans! We are talk­ing about us­ing a slasher and mower! It’s a fire hazard let­ting it grow!

Edi­tor note: For space rea­sons, a sec­ond and more de­tailed Thumbs Down is in­cluded in to­day’s Let­ters & Feed­back sec­tion.

Thumbs Up

to Ali­son and team at Mac­quarie Dry Clean­ers on Tam­worth Street. You’ve worked some amaz­ing won­ders in very hot con­di­tions

Thumbs Up

to Ni­cole and Chris­tine at Play­mates for al­ways mak­ing us feel wel­come with a warm and pos­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment.

Thumbs Up

to a won­der­ful lady driv­ing a black car that picked up our beloved “Tig­ger” af­ter he es­caped in the big storm last week. This lady sat with him and waited for staff to ar­rive at the Pound as she would not leave him in the overnight ken­nels. Staff could not give my daugh­ter her name, but from the bot­tom of our hearts thank you. We ap­pre­ci­ate your kind­ness so much in mak­ing sure “Tig­ger” was safe.

Thumbs Up

to the lady who passed on the right di­rec­tions to find our Dober­man who went miss­ing dur­ing the storm, and also to the kind con­struc­tion work­ers who looked af­ter him un­til we fi­nally lo­cated him.

Thumbs Up

to Kyrie from the Ma­sonic Vil­lage for al­ways hav­ing a smile and giv­ing her clients noth­ing but the best care and al­ways a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude.

Thanks to Danielle for this great photo of light­ning in the dis­tance, taken at South­lakes look­ing to­wards Lazy River Es­tate.

Light­ning of­ten traces all the way to ground, which makes this photo by Gem all the more in­ter­est­ing. It’s as if the light­ning is hang­ing in the sky while it de­cides where to go next.

DPN reader He­lena sent this photo show­ing the dam­age done to the back­yard fence by the wild winds last Tues­day night-early Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Light­ning lights up the sky be­hind the Dubbo Turf Club in this photo from Cay­den taken last Mon­day night, Jan­uary 21, only a cou­ple of days af­ter a big crowd had packed into the venue for The Beatlez con­cert.

Dubbo Photo News’s face­book co­or­di­na­tor Ken put the call out over the past week for read­ers to show us their pho­tos show­ing the storm ac­tiv­ity we’ve been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dur­ing Jan­uary. Here’s a cross sec­tion of the in­ter­est­ing and amaz­ing pho­tos con­trib­uted...

Thanks to Shrestha for this panoramic photo of a golden sum­mer sky taken at South­lakes.
