Hey, hey, hey...guess what? We got rain here today. I was very excited at work when I went on the Met Bureau's site and looked at the radar. It was raining at my place! And...and, it also rained at the train station where I drive each morning. My car's parked there all day and today it rained. It looks like a new car! The rain must have been pretty heavy to get all the dirt off...(blush). But my little Getz is lovely and white again.
Wacol (where I catch the train) is so dusty and I believe less rain falls in that area than anywhere else. So leaving my car there all day, even two days a week, means that I have to wash the dust off the windscreen and then there are muddy streaks where the wipers don't reach! Plus at home I only have a carport rather than a garage and because it's been so dry, there's another layer of dust. What's the point of washing the car??
Anyway, I'm sure that because of the lack of dirt, my car was lighter to drive tonight (and it went faster, too!...oops). I was on the motorway but even though I was doing 110 kph at one stage, people were passing me...the speed limit is 100 kph. I don't usually do above the speed limit and find when I'm on the motorway or freeway, it's so easy to creep up over the limit.
However, I do not want a speeding fine so I do keep within the legal limit...usually. I remember a couple of years ago...again when I was working full time covering for holiday leave...for a week there were coppers everywhere I went, pointing radar guns at me. It got to the point I was starting to take it personally! Especially since I hadn't seen any sign of police for the previous 18 months. Actually thinking about that, it's probably about time they'll be on my route home any time now. That's all right, I've paid my registration and I will keep within the speed limit.
It's getting closer to the weekend and my stint of full time work ends on Friday week...you'll hear me yelling "woohoo" for sure.
