A rainy day in Melbourne

Nothing warms my heart like a gloomy, rainy day. I’m lucky that I don’t really have to face the elements each day to get to work (thanks to my little car park), so I guess I get to enjoy this simple little pleasure without any of the annoying parts.

Yesterday Melbourne was hit with a big storm that cut off power to sections of the city, damaged homes and grounded planes at the airport. There was rumbling thunder all afternoon and plenty of lightning, and in the middle of the afternoon the sky was almost black with heavy clouds. Damage aside, it was beautiful!

By the time I got home the worst had passed, but I grabbed a big golf umbrella and used the last of the light to make a little video. Enjoy this footage of my rain-soaked little garden, and the vocal loveliness of Randy Newman.

(Oh, and please pardon my shaky camera work – it wasn’t easy to keep my iPhone still and dry with one hand while I held a big, heavy umbrella with the other! I wonder what my neighbours think of me, out in a lightning storm holding a metal rod in the air…)
