At 4 in the morning I drove to the center of town to see some hot air jettisoned into some balloons. Naturally, the place was packed when I got there. Nobody wanted to miss the only thing going this month. Unfortunately, it was a little windy and the balloons just flopped about a bit before being packed away.

“Sorry folks! We’ll try again next year!” the PA crackled and the Canberra residents let out a collective sigh before turning about and wandering off into the great plains of grass and concrete that is Canberra.

The sun briefly rose before hiding behind a thick dome of clouds. Cold wind blew from the mountains and across the artificial lake. Rain fell.

So grim.
