20100124_4680 Cool Change (Sun 24 Jan)

Sydney, NSW, Australia

"You cain't always get what you want", as the esteemed philosopher M. Jagger once opined. Neither of the weekend PADs were what I originally intended them to be as I was heading into the weekend. Saturday's was originally going to be a leisurely Saturday breakfast and turned out to be a happy duck, today's was originally going to have a golf theme but given that the city is soaked and I don't feel like getting down onto the wet grass with my 40D I've put that plan on hold.

After yesterday's oven-like temperatures a cool change (complete with thunderstorms) mercifully swept through the city. Showers continue today, the results of which can be seen on a plant in my yard. The house is still baking, but today's top temperature is a comfortable 25 degrees C. The respite will be brief, however, leading up to 31 degrees on Australia Day. And no, I will not be at the beach then, I value my basal skin cells too much. (Or will I? For a PAD is a voracious gallery, forever in need of new fodder. If I am, you can bet it'll be early in the day. You'll just have to tune in on Tuesday to see.)
