How Is The Weather?

0 comments suggest edit

The title of my post is meant to indicate that this post is not technical in nature, but rather just a bit of small talk, chit-chat, idle conversation. You know, the sort of surface level conversation meant to break the ice and pass the time. How is the weather where you are?

The weather where my parents and brother live is rather cold right now. Today’s high was 20° F with a low of 8° F (that’s -6.7° C and -13° C respectively). Tomorrow they will enjoy a brisk 12° F high and 2° F low (which is -11° C and -16° C). Brrrr!

That’s why we’re looking forward to having them thaw out by visiting us in December. Right now we’re enjoying a nice high of 75° F and a low of 56° (egads! Time to bust out a sweater!).

Meanwhile, we are excitedly looking forward to our trip to Spain coming up. We are flying into Madrid, travelling to León and then Bilbao. Afterwards we’re off to Barcelona for a few days before flying back.

Mi esposa y yo estamos practicando nos español para el viaje. When we need to use the bathroom, we are fully prepared to ask, but hope they point rather than give us directions.

    Mid 80's today. Once it drops into the mid 70's, us Floridians will get all anxious for Christmas.

    Heaven forbid we get a cold spell in the 60's like we did after Wilma!

    Unfortunately this is the hardest time to figure out what to wear along the middle southeast; mid 70's during the day, 30's to 40's at night/early morning (as it relates to the commute). Should stay warm-ish until around t-giving, then we'll have highs in the 40's until March.

    You CA/FL folks are spoiled weather-wise :-).
