The Tasmanian Bush Fires

On Friday the 4th of January, Tasmania had a record-breaking heat wave that reached 41.8˚C (107.24˚F).

We also had high winds and that is a recipe for bush fires.

So far there have been over 100 homes lost, but no confirmed deaths. Many were stranded on the Tasman Peninsula and there were some very kind and generous people who used their boats to ferry over 1000 residents and tourists to safety.

To all Tasmanians, there are many charity drop off places to donate items, just be sure to check with them about what they NEED before you drop stuff off.

In other, more light news, Tim McEwen, the artist behind Greener Pastures, has done a great glowing review of a little zine that I did ages ago called The Littel Dragun.
