I wasn’t going to mention the rain as I know people find talking about the weather boring. BUT I CANNOT FUCKING HELP IT AS IT IS SLOWLY DRIVING ME INSANE….

For those of you who are reading from interstate or overseas, imma gonna fill you in.

It has been raining in Sydney and surrounds for days. And when I say raining, it has been raining big fat drops in super chunky downfalls. It is basically like being in a shower. And accompanying this rain, huge gusts of wind have been felling trees and branches so much so, that several parts of Sydney looks like a hurricane has hit it.

Many schools have closed. Hospitals are running on power generators. All in all it is a bit of a disaster.

I hate bad weather. When I lived in London for a couple of years, I developed a bad case of SADS, which stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder. I self diagnosed of course, but boy I was glum and gloomy along with everyone else.

But then Summer would hit and everyone would totally get their boobs out at the local park. People would bid you good day with a genuine smile on their face. Jugs of Pimms with colourful fruit would be ordered and consumed in sunny gardens at pubs everywhere.

It was a miraculous shift in mindsets of all. Glorious English Sun!

The problem is that the Glorious English Sun doesn’t last very long and once again, the grey skies would arrive. Boobs would be popped back under bras, skivvies, turtlenecks, cardigans, scarves and coats, while the smile-less shuffle of the streets resumed. The bottom of your pants were constantly wet and you never were ever truly dry.

I feel like that now. Never truly dry. But in an ironic twist of fate, in the time that I have written this blog post,

THE RAIN HAS STOPPED! Seriously! It is like someone up there knew that we have been pushed to the limits. Thank you Weather God! Now if you can get AGL to come to the party and whack the power back on, I will run naked down the street.

Anyone else had a gut-full?

EDITED TO ADD – I totally jumped the gun. It broke for ten minutes and now it is pissing down again. SAD.
