Bushfire Sky in Sydney today


Another sad day in Sydney as homes have been lost to bushfires. When I finished work (about 4.30pm) today I came out to an eerie sky…

The wind is so strong all the smoke and ash have been blown quickly towards the sea. Listening on the radio, people on the coast were getting ash and burnt leaves falling on them – they are such a long way from the Blue Mountains and beyond where the fires are burning.

My thoughts are with the fire fighters and the families affected by these fires.
