The English Weather [Jul. 31st, 2016|11:00 am]
Tony Grist
It rained yesterday- for the first time in weeks- proper rain not mizzle. This is good. It's being rained on so much that keeps England "green and pleasant."  While not going as far as Chesterton- who said he liked all sorts of weather except for the kind commonly called "good"- I think our climate is wonderful. There's so much variety. I love a bright summer's day, but I don't care for too many of them laid end to end.  I've been to consistently hot places- Egypt for dry heat, Kentucky for damp heat- and they're grim.

Today, after the rain, the sun is shining again and because of the rain everything feels refreshed. The lawn- which hasn't been cut for a good while now- is sprinkled with buttercups.

Yes, the lovely changeable English weather... I wouldn't want to live in any other climate, except sometimes when the sky has been grey for three months on end.

No climate is perfect but I think ours is as good as any.

Come to Houston. The sun is actually painful on my old thin skin.

haha - I'm not sure you can. I've lived here my whole life and its intensity still surprises me.
