Winter is here…

I realize that writing about the weather if you’re in Melbourne is like writing about, say, bombings if you’re in Iraq. It’s something that simply happens, you can’t do much about and you don’t even think about it after a while; you just feel lucky to get out of it alive (and dry).

But, can someone please turn the heating back on? Whoever flicked the switch to the “winter” position went a little too far this time, I guess: 3 degrees at night right in the CBD, and -2 in Yarra Glen? Come on!

In any case, this weekend is just gorgeous! Sunny, light wind, few clouds… enough to give you a false sense of security and send you out in the world dressed for a sunny autumn afternoon, and then send you back in for a heavier coat. Still, gorgeous. Perfect to go out and bask in the sun for a few hours. Enjoy it while we can, because (a) the sun is still setting very early, and (b) our good friends at the Bureau of Meteorology tell us the rain is coming…

    It’s hard not to talk about the weather in Melbourne :)

    It changes so often that it only makes sense when you’re trying to make conversation to at least mention the weather.

    Personally, I use what the Meteorologists say as a general “guide” as anything can still happen! :) (The weather’s too unpredictable in Melbourne. And then global warming throws another thork into the equation.)
