I’m hearing about rain and wind and storms and hail and floods in other parts of Australia, and I’m sitting here in warm, sunny Canberra, getting sunburnt. 🙂 The Sydney news reports rain for Canberra almost every day, and almost every day I’m thinking, ‘Where is this mythical stuff?’! I think they’re just jealous. 🙂
My only complaint is that there’s a little *too* much nature. My hay fever has been appalling since I flew back to the ACT on Saturday! I can’t stop sneezing, even after overdosing on antihistamines!
Canberra has such ‘big’ skies. The only other place I’ve seen anything like them is in Western Ukraine. It’s always the first thing I notice when I arrive in the city – the first thing I noticed after flying back on the weekend.
