Is a balmy 33 Celcius and humidity about 98%

But bring a warm jumper and rain coat and warm pants etc! Have a good holiday!

Holiday - I wish working at Somerton every day and all weekend on a corporate networking client is not my idea of holiday. I will be sure to have a good time anyway.

David,
It's typical Melbourne weather all year round. Crappy one minute, worse the next!!!
They are well known for having all 4 season's worth of weather there within the same day.
So pack a bit of everything.....but you could probably get away with leaving your SPEEDO'S at home.
Glad it's you and not me; that's for sure.
At least you'll have Andrew there to prescribe all the pills and potions you'll be needing to overcome the numerous deadly deseases you're likely to pick up.
Have Fun, won't you!!! LOLOLOL

Roachie, we only get the weather you have after you guys have finished with it. I am sure David will not be making the sorts of visits that require pills and potions from Andrew to ward off deadly diseases you infer. LOL LOL I wouldn't know where you get those either.............
Cheers,

Sorry John and Peter,

We keep all the best of it and only send you the shyte!!! LOL But then again we get all our excellent weather from WA, so thanks for that David.

Perhaps you try and take some of your good stuff with you?

Also, if you've got any spare time, see if one of these well-informed blokes (Andrew, John or Peter) can show you where all the "nice" places are.....shouldn't take 'em long!!! hahaha

John, don't be bluffed by Roachies outlook on Melbourne weather. I heard he hails from around Canberra. Now that's what I call putting upwith bad weather. I'm glad he doesn't drive a Yota as I'm sure you would be embare-assed by claiming him to be a fellow Nissan driver LOL

Des, really think that Roachie and others really love the thought of rain but are just NIMBYs. The thought of Roachie from Canberra, really does put me off, you are right.

Canberra the porn capital. Hmmm. Wonder if they have some of the diseases Roachie was inferring from cities. That be the place where he knows Andrews pills and potions would be good for him...

I am not sure what you mean in regard to driving a Yota. I never claim a Nissan driver, they claim their own. I do note he pulls an Ultimate, are you inferring he is not an Ultimate person? Hahhhaha ( when we travelled the Eyre Peninsular we saw people with a Nissan and an Ultimate with Victorian plates several times, referred to them at "the Ultimate people") Yeh, reckon you may be right.
Cheers,

Des,
At least Canberra's weather is consistent......crappy every day for about 4 months of the year and sweltering the rest of the year...LOL
John,
Yes mate, all of us Ultimate owners really are the "ultimate people"........the only thing that exceeds how bloody nice we are is our very high level of modesty.....hahahaha

We race from all points around Vic and it would be good to get an early indication of the weekends weather (over Bass Strait) to pick an appropriate team.

Nudie, need the shottie round here at the moment as the sea... urhh paddock gulls are a real bas***d messing on roofs and getting into the water supply. I know they are no substitute for pidgeon but they are readily available. Will provide the reds if we can get the pidgeons cooked mate.

The gulls will probably do for Mad Dog I guess if he only gets skinny pidgeons...........

I would love to try to catch up with people if interested however the only time I am currently sure that I will not be working is Sunday night. I am also trying to catch up with some other large clients so scheduling is a little difficult. I will post more if I know that I have some free time.

Thanks Eric,

Tomorrow is great thanks for the offer I look forward to catching up with anyone who can make it. I see Andrew has put a post in also about this trip. I am going to start packing and getting organised for the trip now. Can I leave it up to you guys to sort out what and where and I will speak to you tomorrow - again thanks very much.

I may have some other time free however I have a heavy work commitment over the weekend and I cannot guarantee any other time.

Melbourne weather:

If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes.....

The weather bureau is always right.....eventually.

35 degrees??? is that Farenheit or Celsius ?

Melbourne: melting one day, muddy the next.

As we supply the Mexicans with their weather, and they take it and stuff it up, then go prepared as they are forecasting possible snow in Adelaide hills on Friday and not much better Saturday.
Have a good trip.

As an ex Victorian I can say that the best way to determine the weather in melbourne in winter is to find an elevated position and look towards the Dandenong Ranges. If you can't see the hills, it's raining. If you can see them it's about to rain.
