Today, I left the house to walk to work and it was lightly sprinkling outside, with blue clouds 200 meters away. However, less than 20 steps from my front door, the sky opened up and it started dumping rain. It was complete with flashes of lightning and claps of thunder. To top it off, it started hailing! I got drenched, and could not stop staring at the blue sky that seemed to be two streets away. Then, it stopped. Completely.
Just like that, there was thunder, lightning, hail, and blue skies. Melbourne Airport used to have a sign that said “Welcome to Melbourne. If you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes.” That’s the truth!!
Alicia’s Aussie Word of the Day: tooted. Meaning honked. Useage: A car tooted at me as I j-walked across the street.
