Re: Weather!

The heat was pretty crazy yesterday in GE, the theatre turned into a giant box filled to the roof, there were moments I thought everybody will either die of the heat or the noise when we were gutting our fortessissimos. The great thing about cities here are the fountains, when you walk around you can actually pour ice cold water on your neck, face, and everywhere as we did

It is now cooler and drizzly, so pleasant. Divine. Still skirt/flipflops weather.

I'm not saying it's completely wrong but a statement like: <<Das zeigt auch die Statistik nach Jahreszeit der Beratungsstelle für Unfallverhütung (BfU): Von 2011 bis 2015 verunfallten am meisten Velo- und Töfffahrer zwischen Mai und September>> is silly as that is the bicycle and bike season

The forecast (wunderground) constantly calls for rain 1-3 days out. As the day goes by, the rain always stays that 1-3 days away...taunting me forever by keeping its distance

Or, it still calls for rain but it drops from 80% chance down to 40 down to 20 and then it never actually rains. Seriously, why do I even bother to look at the forecast

Last Wednesday, Accuweather was still saying it would be 17 degrees today. Pfft!

Re: Weather!

We have grad ceremonies for students and I gotta wear festive stuff. Festive what, though...festive heels? Festive rainboots? The weather forecast has been so off lately. I will wear a dress with a transparent raincoat over it. There. Rainboots then heels when I get to the hall.

Hmmm...these look fun.

Re: Weather!

Had a good steady rain last night and not too hot today with a good breeze for most of the day. Thunderstorms predicted to start in the wee small hours so hoping not to be shot out of bed by a big bang! Rain tomorrow hopefully and COOLER!
