Rain in Sydney desperately needed in Victoria!

090210 Sydney's Rain Needed in VIC

Quick sketch in the car on the way to work this morning (drawn and coloured at red lights) while listening to the latest news from the horrific bush fire disaster in Victoria.

Current figure is 173 deaths and over 700 homes totally destroyed and the fires are still burning. The worst natural disaster in the history of Australia – we are all deeply affected. On Saturday fire storms caused by temperatures around 47C/116F and strong winds gave people no chance of escaping. I personally don’t know anyone affected but friends of friends have lost loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with all those that suffer and the brave men and women all that fight on trying to control the fires and help the victims. We also think of those in QLD to the north that are suffering in floods!
