Melbourne is renowned for it’s changeable weather. There is a standing joke here that if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.
However, the past few days have seen consistently heavy showers coming across the country from Adelaide, bringing strong winds with them. Despite the weather forecast today for being more of the same, and only predicted to reach 17c, walking through St Kilda today we saw people in shorts and t-shirts, thongs (flip-flops), maxi dresses, mini-skirts, high heels that could be barely walked in. Which when it did piddle it down, and blow a hooley, made for some entertaining viewing as girls were holding alternatively onto their hair, their skirts, their shoes, going ‘Wooooo’ as they were blown along the road and trying to avoid deep puddles.
I felt warm and snug in my boots, jeans and waterproof jacket. I wish summer would hurry up and arrive though. I’ve washing draped all over the house like Wishy Washy’s laundry.
