As we race towards our second day in a row at 38ºC here in Melbourne, just slightly hotter than Friday’s 36ºC, I’m wishing for a cooler climate. I’ve heard mention that we are expecting some serious rainfall… IN APRIL!
So while we swelter in the heat and create a huge demand on our power grid for air-conditioning I think of the places in the world such as that pictured here.
I know in the 88 questions for Getting to Know You (posted yesterday) I said that I don’t mind summer these days… I didn’t really think of the 38º days. I moved to Melbourne expecting more moderate temperatures in summer.
For those who don’t know, growing up in Sydney (New South Wales), Melbourne had a reputation of being a cold, rainy city… it was a city I dreamed of visiting on hot days. Now I live here I’m thinking of Switzerland and ice encased vans :P
Oh well I have some work to do today. And I have begun a manifesto for The Usagi Project… so don’t think all has gone quiet on that front… The Project is my future.
