Tuesday


Bugger me, what a day. It was as steamy as a sauna this morning - the photo below really doesn't do the mist any justice. And then it just poured down on the way home - a ripper of a storm came through. I was having trouble seeing where I was going due to the volume of water pouring off my head and into my eyes. Still, it was a nice cool ride home after a stinkingly humid day. Only downside was the lightning bolt that crashed to earth about a hundred yards to my right as I came off the ANZAC Bridge - caused me to jump about a foot to the left. As long as it doesn't start hailing, I don't care.


The pussies at work on the other hand.... they refused to leave the office because it was raining, and they had to walk across 10 feet of uncovered pavement on the way to the train station. Sheesh!

Maybe the wussies had a premonition that a train would be hit by lightning, and a tree struck fell across the line.

Made of sugar, aren't they - probably thought they'd melt.

Great pictures, thanks!
