^Note to self: Got to use my white Assos Mangussta jersey more. It's cool again.
:D :lol: :D

Worst part is that it got lost along with all my clothing in the bag th airline "disappeared without a trace to this date". Super angry about it too, as it was my carry-on they forced me to check in due to all the overhead space being loaed by the time I boarded the plane. I never have check-in luggage, and the odd day in decades I do it gets lost!! :evil: :twisted: :evil:

After a record setting rainy autumn with four months straight of rain, I am looking at this with an unhealthy amount of envy!

Nice bike BTW

After record drought... We are running out of water in our dams. Our country is burning... One bush fire is Gospers mtn area larger than Sydney itself. We are all pack a day smokers.. On a good day due to the smoke accumulated in Sydney basin...

So we would love some of your rain!

Given this state has some of the worst fires and drought ever seen theres not much to be envious of. It was actually scary riding out there given I've seen the ferocity of fire up close growing up. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Meanwhile it rained heavily in Melbourne for this morning's ride... about 13c.

In two days it will be 39c... then 41c on Friday.

Climate change is f*cked.

Yes, I know you are dealing with something so much more severe than just a longing for some sun, so my comparison was a bit unfair. It was, however, not meant to be offensive.

I guess the climate changes are very very real. Despite many politicians trying to convince us it's not.

@happyon2wheels no offence. Just pointing out the dichotomy of climate across the world..

Here is a couple of more normal Sydney sunrise pictures ... At least for a day... Tomorrow will get bad again. ImageImage

Probably no so far from where you are ... the countryside is green, but wet and chilly on Sunday morning :?
