Edward: melt away; you guys will have spring sooner or later...
32 & snowing in middle U.S.A. on this night in May.
Just a nice little reminder that God always has the final say...
More snow, eh?...
Yep! And it's beautiful! I might even get a ❄ tattoo to commemorate this day. Just kidding, bruthah!
Ontario: warm, sunny and dry
Well, I don't doubt that it is. Up here, anyway, in Canada, the novelty wears off.
(PS: the novelty of the snow, I mean, not of tattoos.)
Edward: Finally, right? (I guess all the ' Springs golfers will have been getting a bit impatient, right?)
Anyway, I think I read that the original 'Springs golf course dates from the 19th century, so they must have figured long ago how to deal with the local weather.
Edwards: Well, golfers need a lot of patience in any case, right? not least, for the weather in the 'Springs.
I guess the bad weather blows down on you guys from the Cook Mountains, right?
Oh, right; maybe it was the Aussies, then...
Nope, but I've met many Kiwis & Aussies.
(Not met any Stewart Islanders, though...)
Mostly wrens over there, aren't they? (Stewart Island Wren)
Well, it's all comparative. I've been many times in Monaco and it's only half a square mile. (It has the full range of winds, called different names according to whatever direction they are from, though. A fifth of it is very flat and reclaimed from the sea; some of it is tall and rocky, being the foothills of the Alps, and so on.) So you guys in NZ have got a lot of variety down there, too, I guess. I'd like to do the trip across the Marlborough Sounds from Wellington to Picton. (I remember reading Katherine Mansfield's 'The Picton Ferry'.)
Ontario: warm and sunny and dry
Sunny and 77F here Might hit 80 tomorrow.
Sunny and warm here, too.
Thinking about running a few kilometers.
Sunny sunny Springtime here. In the Pacific Northwest our "Summer" is compressed into a period of about 6 weeks. 73Â°F tomorrow. So sweet this is. And have I told you? Getting some soft-fatties this week for the motorcycle. It's all about the grip. Them new tires are better than teeth!
Oh, I'm getting new teeth in two weeks too.
There are other things too. The Lord, your God is breaking me with Love like I've never seen nor heard of. There is much more in this Day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.
Got a little rain yesterday and it was rather cool only getting up to about 35F. Today, it is overcast and a little warmer. The sun keeps trying to poke a little light through once in a while but the clouds are persistent.
