Brisbane is experiencing that most peculiar of events: precipitation. While the city is all too familiar with perspiration, we have forgotten what rain is like. Indeed, despite the hike in petrol prices, half of Brisbane seems to have decided that today is a very good day for a drive. So, not only are the roads slick and soaking they're rather crowded.

And everyone is wearing a jacket or a coat, and most of these coats are at least ten years old, a sizable portion of them date from the eighties. Brisbane is a relatively fashionable city, but come a cold, wet spell, and you're liable to see half the population dressed like extras in Miami Vice. Of course, my old grey jacket never goes out of style!
