I hope I don't only post about the English weather from now on.
I can't help it. It's thrills me.
Out there right now, at least the last time I looked, rain was coming down in large rainy masses of rain.
Identical weather in Los Angeles would have shut down the entire city for three days. Bright red "STORMWATCH L.A.!" logos would have filled our televisions. A ticker at the bottom of the screen would have informed us of school closures and evacuation procedures.
Whereas here ...
Some people shield themselves with umbrellas. Some don't. Some wear raincoats. Some are fine in t-shirts.
One septegenarian was perfectly at home in egg-shell blue sweatpants, tourquoise blue jacket, and cornflower blue fishing hat.
It's pouring out there.
