The marvellous Rubye mentioned in a comment that it must be summer here. Indeed it is. Above is the photo to prove it. I was at work battling the elements while R entertained Sis in Law and Chainsaw Niece just after the hail had fallen. At one point during the unseasonable weather, a line of stationary trams formed below the Highrise as the tram line power had been knocked out by a fallen tree in Domain Road.
Later when R was out and about, the fire alarm had gone off at the local police station, a few buildings along. When I say police station, it is not a small building but some twenty or so storeys high. Most people had evacuated to a marshalling area in the gravel park behind the building, but the prisoners in handcuffs were lined up in St Kilda Road for public display.
