in with a bang
autumn has definitely hit melbourne (other than tuesday's 32C). i wore socks and shoes for the first time in almost 2 months today (if i could have made it thru the long weekend it would have been 2 months). i even went thru 2 pairs of socks because it rained on 3 of 4 trips between work and home so i changed my wet socks at lunch only to get the next pair wet on the ride back to work. at least i had all my gortex gear on so other than wet feet (i didn't want to wear my gortex hiking boots to work) i was warm and dry. the rain has been nice though. very much needed (the grass in all the parks is still bright yellow though) and it's helped with the remaining fires around the state too. snow even fell in the mountains!!
