That pretty much sums up last week in Melbourne. I know I just talked about how wonderful the autumn weather was, but winter seemed to roar in to Victoria after I wrote that post! It does rain quite often here, but typically there will be an occasional or random shower and then it will be sunny again. Last week, however, we had two straight days of nearly constant rain, leaving the ground saturated with water.

As far as the rain goes, I’ve been told that winter is often the rainiest season of them all. Because we arrived in August, we only caught the tail end of winter, which involved a little bit of rain and a few cool days but nothing like we had last week. Of course there are beautiful days as well, and the forecast for the next few days appears to contain sunny skies and pleasant temperatures. However, as I’ve mentioned a few times, you cannot trust a weather forecast in Melbourne!
