Lucky sods.

The autumn/winter weather here in California has for a hardy Brit such as myself been rather pleasurable with many days reminiscent of summer in England. I awoke yesterday morning to see our local mountain covered in a fair covering of snow that extended as far down as surrounding towns such as Danville. Do Californians have a direct line to god?....the Christmas season arrives and it snows!....you just can't be this lucky. At home in England it is as usual wet and windy,not much of a surprise there. There is an urban legend that Eskimos have 200 words for snow...big deal! I have 500 for rain and all of them begin with f!

...ten days in Cyprus at the beginning of summer and I was pining for fresh rain on my face.

We have just completed over 50 unbroken days of rain in Blighty.St Swithins Day would have been a blessing.

Lucky? It's freakin' cold! What's the French word for ice-bath, bain-marie? The surrounding hills are all frozen, and down in the valley the cold air slides down the hillside freezing everything.
Take me back to Calcutta!
