moon

wherein the universe conspires against me

While there ought to be a nice conjunction visible in the evening sky this evening, the weather here today is unseasonably overcast. In fact, it's 9pm and currently raining.

On a related note, for some reason Kiwis believe that the first day of summer is 1 December (while it's properly the equinox on 21 December). A comment I heard today was, "First day of summer and the weather is terrible!"
