My view in Spring is usually like this...
Blue sky, blue sea, sunshine, warmth.
Half of the time I've been back it's been like this...
Grey sky, grey sea, raining, cold.
We're into November and I have the heating on, something I can't remember doing in November before.
Cricket is on at the Sydney Cricket Ground - a one day international against Sri Lanka - but rain's just stopped play, the covers are on, it's only 4.30pm but they have the lights on.
Football weather, not cricket weather. It's not like any Spring I remember.
