Everyone imagines summertime in Australia to be full of hot sunshine and days at the beach. But this is pretty much what happens 50% of the time. I guess that’s just how it goes when you live in this part of the world. It’s a bit depressing, especially since in my former life, I was spoiled by sunny Southern California weather 365 days a year. I mean, it isn’t like I live in Seattle or Portland so I really can’t complain. But just so you know, this is a real life snapshot of what summer is actually like in Australia (well, the part of AUS that I live in anyway). Torrential rain combined with heavy doses of humidity is the norm. Oh Sydney summer, you’re such a bummer.
