Stormy weather

Melbourne has just experienced some pretty major thunderstorms - there are warnings regarding damage from hailstone and flash flooding. I, of course, had the good fortune to get caught in the first storm as I made my way home from the supermarket (on foot, bien sur!). I tried to avoid it by lurking in the video rental store for a while, but then bit the bullet and attempted the dash home.

Let's just say that bucking down would be an understatement. I was completely and utterly DRENCHED! I had to come home and strip off then towel off - even my undies were soaked! That'll teach me to ignore the weather warnings and sally forth minus the umbrella.


  1. I had to hide out in the city library for about 1/2 an hour before I could come home because I didn't have my umbrella either. I saw a few people run into the library who had got caught in it and they were soaked. There was no way I was going out in it :)

    When I got home I discovered that the rain had overflowed the gutters and drenched the kitchen :( And my cat was in the dog's bed and the dog was perched on top of a cushion on the couch (on the verandah, usually out of the weather) which was soaked. He had about 10cm square of dry space to curl up. Poor things.

    I hope you're warm and dry now :)

  2. I went out in it this afternoon and got drenched on my way home. It was quite fun! Felt like i was back home in the UK for a little while.
