Green, but not Hot nor Bothered, in Adelaide.
Up till now the weather has been quite substandard for an Adelaide summer. The Bureau of Meteorology has been promising one thing and delivering another. But Madame finally put her foot down and actions speak louder than words. Naturally, I obeyed and off to the beach we went. Her Wicked Weasel (.com) swimsuit needed much more than just being worn in the garden while feeding les oiseaux (the magpies). The WW did get wet, when the Bureau provided us with a meagre 37.9 degrees: just warm enough to take the plunge. Naturally, I was a victim of the camera as well, but I'm a little more (or is it less) modest, so bad luck! Tomorrow will be nearer 40 C, that's 104 F and we'll see what happens. Sad thing though, the water temperature is only about 26C / 79F. It's so hard living in such a harsh climate and having to decide whether to wear the green or the orange (or neither) !
