Rain, Rain Go Away

Well, London has finally lived up to its reputation. It has been raining here almost non-stop for the last month. In fact, August 2008 officially became the rainiest August on record. Sunny skies can quickly turn to rainy ones. My umbrella has become another limb and soggy shoes are are now expected. I don't want to discourage anyone from coming to visit though. The rain is a culture and you learn to live with it. In fact, there are some things about the rain that I actually enjoy. I love listening to the rain hit the conservatory windows. I love bundling up in a soft, comfy sweatshirt after being out all day (a nice glass of wine is an added bonus!). In a weird way, I even love sloshing through the streets! Of course, I might have to be reminded of these things a few months from now! Rain is truly part of the experience and culture and I going to embrace it!

Glad to hear your are adjusting to everything - including the weather! It has been a hot and humid August and September in Charlotte, however, we have gotten some rain this summer. We got about 8 inches of rain over two days last month! The yards are finally green again, but we are still in a drought. Miss you guys, and really enjoy your blogs -- great pictures of the two of you. (I also like Schlopy's new picture -- looks like it is a London picture.)

Hope Jiggy's job is still going well and you both continue to adjust to your life abroad. When do you get your new furniture?

Take care ~~Lynne
