About half way through this month it was recorded as the wettest December Brisbane has had in 10 years. Although wet seems like an understatement. Flooding, damp, moldy, muggy, frustrating...these are just some words that I feel better suit December 2010. But it's not all bad. While the unexpected wet weather has caused the cancellation of christmas events across the city, not allowed our clothes to dry properly for weeks, and meant that we spent most of the month indoors (it does help justify watching midday movies though) when we would usually be enjoying the sun at the beach, it does mean that everything is GREEN and beautiful. Everywhere you go the grass is overgrowing and new shoots are coming up. It's lovely. Our back stairs down to the clothes line are even sporting some trendy green moss, thanks to the December rains.
