What's going on with our weather?!
Update on our crazy weather:
Lashing rain and bracing winds as Melbourne experiences its coldest February day on record. Read about it here: From Smokin' to Soakin'
The weather today has been completely crazy. As I mentioned it was 35 degrees yesterday, and I was happily cooling off in the pool...as you do over summer. But last night the clouds rolled in and a rain band has been stationary over Melbourne for over a day.
For an ENTIRE day and night it HAS NOT STOPPED RAINING. Not a break. Nothing. Constant rain. Flooding, car accidents, calls to emergency services. For most of the day the temperature struggled to reach 10 degrees, finally "peaking" at 12.9. Melbournians, who only yesterday were in singlets and sandals at the beach were in overcoats and scarves today, or trying to stay indoors by the heater. I went out wearing gloves and a fluffy scarf...something I didn't expect to be doing until at least May! Maybe we're trying to empathise with our Northern wintery neighbours, in some bizarre sense of solidarity? This is totally crazy. What's going on with the world?? I know we asked for a cool change but...bring us back our summer! We didn't really mean it! We were actually quite enjoying it!
