WTF are we doing in this horrible windy place (Cowes, Phillip Island), said R. Why aren't we sunning ourselves in Queensland?
Step forward to a day or two later to an overheard conversation on a tram covering the same period. "I was in Queensland and it just rained and rained. We were at (I forget which one but a big amusement park on the Gold Coast), and it just rained the whole day".
A whole day of raining is rare in Melbourne. Sydney has more rainfall than we do.
