Oh, Hi Canberra winter.
Yes, temperature of minus 6.5. APPARENT TEMP -9.7. And still minus two when I left for the gym at six am.
Obstacles on the walk to work at 8:30 in the morning.
And these clothes are clearly not substantial enough. Cute, but failing to warm me.
(I should add that only HALF the electric blanket gave up. Much snuggling required.)
The fog across the oval at work this afternoon.
Nothing a little tights action couldn’t brighten up!
Okay. Here is my itinerary in yahoo weather widgets. Towards the end my packing dilemma will be revealed.
First stop, Vienna. Fly into Frankfurt Saturday with Malaysian Airlines, then hop straight onto an Air Berlin flight to Vienna. Were supposed to be meeting friends there, but they’ve pulled out… plans to date: apple strudel (for Rish), music, horses. For all locations, suggestions welcome. We probably won’t stay in Vienna the whole time we’re in Austria, likely to venture out a little :)

Halloween night was good (costume and hotel room pics to come later this week), amazing how much you can fit into 23 hours in Sydney :) A few hours sleep, we managed to drive home safely… watched the cool storm coming in over the wind farm at Lake George.

It’s a gorgeous spring day today…. tops of mid 20s for Canberra on the first day of October. You think it might hang around for the long weekend? It seems not…
This is when I start being happy I’ll in Newcastle for the long weekend. Until I see the weather predictions there:
erm. Okay. At least I get to see my little fraggle of a nephew, hey?

My seedlings are loving this alternating rainy and sunny weather, even if the rest of us aren’t. I’m just going to savour the sunshine. And be happy that I’m on study leave/flex today, because this way I don’t have to decide if my cough is bad enough to justify another sick day and a trip to the doctor. Put that off til tomorrow!
The dust storm (oh and the gastro and cold and flu viruses that are going around) was all anyone spoke about today.
Fortunately, I don’t have the gastro. I think I have a cold though. ugh. Looking forward to rain and a good night’s sleep. To clear my head and all the dust.
Oh, I wish I’d thought of this… I was trying to think up new slogans for that banner all weekend!
edit (Th 9pm): someone put one of my pics up on the Wikipedia Australian Dust Storm page. *ahem* I wasn’t using my camera while driving. nu-ah. How filthy was the windscreen???
