"That's because of all those gas-guzzling personal transportation systems, that you you see these days, son. But you'll still be complaining in a month or so, when it hits 30 degrees with high relative humidity"

Wait until the fire season and Santa Ana's kick in - although you may just be north enough to avoid them.

They have started around here. only 30 minuted away and it is so scary....I feel bad for our planet when I see all the smoke going up in the air. my wife works for AAA and always gets the calls from people whos house is about to burn down... . One thing that is noce about living here is you never have to plan around the weather....it is always the same :msncool:

Each to their own, hey Anthony. This Spring is truly awful - and hopefully a one off for quite some time. But I just would never want to live in an area where seasons are not clearly marked and different- really, honest:)

Taveau, yes this Spring is indeed ***** - how old is little one, btw.

About " (if more women could come, I'll happy)".
On second thoughts I will hold my comment for another day (just remember the Robert the Bruce story.) :D

Well, everything is relative. My father, back in the northwest of Spain, where I come from, was complaining about the amount of snow they got yesterday.

Now, that would piss me off at this time of year :eek:

It will be snowing soon in Switzerland also, but at 700m. Luckily I am at 500m :D

I still have the heat on in our house. It kicks in based on the outside temperature.

I know where the northwest of Spain is and I found the area of the Escorial freezing, but what is the height above sealevel where your father is located ?

And meteo Suisse seems to be reviewing downwards (temperature wise) their forecast, it's for at least another week...and 6C!!! Now, come on, even Britain does better than that!;)

You can get tired of anything.

At my home in the states, there are more than 300 days of sunshine a year. I loved it when I originally moved to that part of the country from the midwest, but started missing the rain after a while (only about 20 cm per year).

Whenever it did rain, people tended to treat it like a bid deal, go out on the patio to watch the lightning, etc. Snow? forget about it, maybe 1-2 cm about once every ten years. 10 months out of the year, cargo shorts and a hoodie were as bundled up as you ever needed to get, unless going up to the mountains.

When we moved to Europe, I was actually pretty excited to live somewhere with seasons, lot's of greenery, and getting to see snow again.

This last year in Geneva started out like:
"Hey, doesn't this rain make everything smell so clean?"
"Honey, did I bring a raincoat?"
"D'oh! I forgot about mosquitos!"
"Where's the mop? The stupid dog left muddy paw prints all over the kitchen!"

Followed up by:
"Isn't the snow so beautiful"
"Honey, didn't I have a wool overcoat about 10 years ago?"
"Hey kids, lets build a snow fort!"
"The snow's so deep I can't get this gate open!"
"Where can I get a snow shovel?"
"When is this white sh!t going to stop?"

Now I'm at the point that I think I'm growing moss on my undercarriage and I've actually worn out an umbrella, which I didn't even know was possible. I can't wait to see the sun again.
Stupid rain.
