And we had the hottest November on record or something...go figure :?

We had to get out of the house for a prospective buyer to look through and we usually just walk the dogs - not tonight - that wind was straight off the south pole and the rain wasn't too friendly either!!

3 weeks ago it was 38.9 degrees and now it is about 15...bring back summer :D

Soft. Really soft.

What's wrong a +50km/h headwind containing stinging rain?

Soft .....

:D

Yep, I had some sideways action going on along the Freo foreshore this evening. Just adds to the fun! :)

It was shocking ! So I ate lollies instead of riding, I am sure that balances out in some crazy universe.

I was bad too.. I work in a Data centre with no natural light and normally very little concept of what's going on weatherwise outside.

Hadn't a colleague come back into the office 5 minutes before I was due to knock off and said "It's p!ssing down outside!" I wouldn't have piked it and caught the bus home.

If it wasn't for him saying that I would've walked to the change rooms, got changed, got on my bike.. opened the roller door to the car park and then realised it was wet outside & it would've been too late then to chicken out....

damn him to hell

:D
