Indecisive summer….

1 Feb

Melbourne in January… The middle of the summer for us and one of the driest months on record, that was until January 31.

So far, this blog has been full of pretty beach pictures but last night’s suburban adventures involved sirens and state emergency services (SES), which happens to be conveniently located up the road.

The storm ripped through Melbourne with quite a viciousness and brought with it not only heavy rain but a killer wind. This already determined that I’m not looking forward to winter down here.

This wind brought down trees and power lines blocking off side streets all around me. If it wasn’t for the sirens I probably wouldn’t have known a thing was going on because the house didn’t lose power. WIN!

So hello February 1, wish you would warm up a little bit (thick tights and boots have made a quick appearance).

And enjoy yesterday’s storm highlights.

Flinders Street Station and Southbank shrouded in grey. This storm came on quickly and surprised many.

SES Emergency Services attend to fallen trees. They did NOT like me taking this photo.
