London Weather Thoughts

Everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it.

It has been cold here in Texas the past few days. Well, around 14 degrees °C. That's pretty cold for me. I went to London once in May and it was pretty nice. We took a side trip up to Inverness to see Loch Ness and look for Nessy. It was bloody cold there. We went on a bus tour of the Battlefield of Culloden and all we saw where the fogged up windows of the bus, as no one on the tour wanted to venture topside to see what the guide was talking about. It was also raining. Had a great time though.

A quick Google for London Weather tells me that is 50°F (10°C) at the moment-not too bad, right about where I like it actually. We spent a lot of time walking on London, so the weather is kind of a big deal. Those Tube Stations are always just a little bit farther away than you expect them to be. It's always fun to window shop in Camden Town and Portabella Road. All the touristy stuff that I like seem to have a lot of outdoor components. There's a reason Dr Who wore that big coat and 28 foot long scarf. It can be pretty cold once in a while in London.
