WINTER SOLSTICE IN MELBOURNE

We've had windy and rainy weather last night, and the rain continued to fall this morning. Quite appropriate considering it's Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. There was a cancellation of two trains at my station this morning, but I still managed to get into the City before 7:00 am. It was very crowded on the trains and at the Flinders Street Station, and look at those rows of umbrellas! A very dark and wet Winter morning in the City!

  5. So colorful for being a dark, wet morning! All things in balance - we had a perfect day here in central Indiana for our summer solstice. We could actually use some of that rain you received.

  9. rains cause chaos here, not to mentioned flooding, slow-moving traffic...we had a typhoon these past few days and there were road accidents everyday.
