"I can see clearly now, the rain is gone..."


I can only say this - Global warming is definitely not affecting Europe this Spring. And I don't even need to pay a scientist for that little bit o' information.

Please allow me a little self indulgence to complain about the weather.

We were teased a little at the end of February, beginning of March, into thinking that Spring would be right around the corner. However, the second week of March saw falling temps and falling snow. And aside from, let's say 4 days, the weather has been less than favorable.

We even had snow flakes falling at the school last Wed. afternoon - April 16th! We had a few days of dry enough weather that I was able to get a bulk of my weeding done on Sat. before my Mom and her friend C came. It's hard to get the Spring yard work done when it is constantly raining or 40 degrees cold. Our forecast does not see us over 60 for the next 10 days except for Sat. Which is the only dry day predicted as well.

And - I cannot find my raincoat!!!! What timing. So how am I? Wet. That's how I am. Because I inevitably leave the house without an umbrella. Because my raincoat has a hood. Too bad I don't have my raincoat.

Enough of my dribble/drizzle - whatever. I'm sure next weather post will be about how the summer has heated up to 90 + and due to the lack of air conditioning here, we're burning up.

Thank you for letting me vent. I'm going to make a coffee and try to wake up - sleep being another side effect of the grey weather.

It's been raining here for days. We had a few days of sunshine but we're back to rain. I think snow is in the forecast! I know it just a few short weeks I'll be complaining about the hot weather too! Love reading about you and the other side of the world. :)
