Heavy snow and ice, together with subzero temperatures, resulted in many major airports across Europe and England canceling flights yesterday and today.
My friend Barry who lives in the south of England, sent me this photo taken from his front door at 8:30 a.m today (December 2, 2010).
I met a Finnish tourist who told me that back home in Helsinki (the capital), they’d recently had a very early cold spell, with temperatures going down to minus 15 C. It was important to her that I understood she lived in the south.
“The north is so cold I could never live there,” she said
“You live in the Miami of Finland?” I said
She laughed. “That’s right. I do,”
The airport code for Helsinki is HEL
And L.A? We had a couple of windy, cool days earlier this week, but the wind stayed away today and the sun felt warm and comforting on my back. I took these photos this morning
The B of P flowers weren’t at their best, but I managed to find a couple that looked more or less presentable.
the large olive green swath going across the middle is the winery in Bellair
and as you can see from these school kids, we were wearing t-shirts today.
a few T-shirt sightings:
a plain T-shirt with a tie painted on it
I’m pretty much one of the best people I know (teenage boy)
It’s not that I forget/It’s that I don’t care
