Sunday Stroll

We had a downpour last week, producing flooding and blocked drains and everything.


The rains ashes then city clean after the drains started managing to cope with all the water. This eyebrow home, the one with the overhanging roof hence 'eyebrow,' looked particularly scrubbed and elegant


It's been a funny winter, with no prolonged or even abrupt cold snap we've hardly seen any temperatures below 60F (15C) and time for cold temperatures is running out.


It may only be mid February where you love but winter starts to shut shop around here by the end of February so if there is to be a cold stretch it better come soon.


For the time being I am content to lounge in the sun, with temperatures in the mid seventies American (low twenties Canadian) and wonder who it was decided bilious purple was the right color for curtains?


I've seen pictures of snow drifts Up North and blizzards in Italy and I want none of it. I like sameness when it is accompanied by endless sunshine.


And even though the days are shorter than I'd like, darkness only falls at 6:30 pm so the days are getting decidedly longer and summer time is just weeks away.


Cheyenne ignored the head under the fence but I thought the vicious little brute looked cute contained as it was. My dog likes cold weather but luckily she doesn't have a vote. I vote for continued sun and clear skies but really I don't have a vote either and then latest cold snap saw temperatures last night in the. Mid 60s. Add in a strong breeze and it felt cold, at last.
