A Rainy Day in North Ryde

Today has been a rainy day, which is very welcome after the very hot weather over the weekend here in Australia.

Our office is in the Sydney suburb of North Ryde, so if you are wondering about the post title, that is your answer. I think that the title has a nice ring to it.

Today was a nice day to be stuck inside a classroom. You could hear the rain drumming on the roof and see the heavy rain out the windows. There was also a bit of thunder at one point.

Luckily the rain had stopped by the end of the work day and the walk back to the apartment.

Shrimptons Creek is now flowing again and full of water.

The temperatures were much lower this evening and I was able to take a long walk. However, it was lightly sprinkling when I got back to the hotel.

Now for some sleep 🙂
