Auld Lang Syne

December 31, 2009

It was a sultry and soggy-bottomed start to the ‘tweens’ for us here in Melbourne.

After another melting-hot day, this great storm swept in from the south-west about 8.45pm, and nature turned on a sound and light show that was better than fireworks, and the rain was monsoonal!  And it kept raining, finally stopping well after midnight and the Full Blue Moon glimmered through the cloud cover for a moment.

Everything is sparkling and refreshed after the solid soaking and there were plenty of fireworks going off in my area, so spirits weren’t dampened at all. 

Melbourne is internationally known as the city that has ‘four seasons in one day’, and as one of my favourite comedians, Billy Connelly, once quipped:

There is no such thing as bad weather; just the wrong clothes.
