Where you there when Melbourne’s arvo sky turned into frightening night ?
It was truly when the ‘here and now’ and ‘what comes next’ collided and collapsed upon each other.
When rain became a terrifying curtain and hail stacked high.
Did you see the storm front bearing down, On B-O-M radar turning yellow, red, then black…so black ?
Did you stare in wonder and then a bit in fear, that nature – definitely a mother of some sort this day – pulled out all the stops ?
Did pesto-like be-drizzled cars take your breathe away ? Did shreaded trees and slip sliding trams remove your kilter ?
Were you there when comfortable afternoon took off its cardigan and showed an anger well beyond itself ?
If you did, you were blessed. You didn’t miss seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting a Saturday of remarkable skies and drenched belows.
Cosy and warm isn’t always the place to be.
