It’s wet & wooly in South Perth today…

I think we will all agree it’s pretty miserable weather across Perth today…

I think I maxed about 40 km/h along Labouchere Road this morning on my way to work…even though I was practically the only car going in that direction. The drainage (if there is any, wild guess here) along that road is pretty crummy so your car practically swims to where ever you are going.

South Perth had some wet & wooly times back in 1926, when the Peninsula area was flooded. Shoes and socks were taken off, and skirts and pants hitched up to cross the jetty to catch the ferry to Perth. Kids had a great time and got their rowboats out and went for a paddle down Suburban Road (now known as Mill Point Road).

Here’s hoping that the Como Beach foreshore is holding up OK!
