And the award for the city with the best weather goes to….

….London! Holy cow, what a day. Aside from the fact that London is a great city, I haven’t been in such pleasant weather in years. And no, I’m not being sarcastic. It’s around 60F and was overcast in the morning, but it’s all blue skies now. Just amazing weather. And the timing couldn’t be better, given that today was my day to roam around the city. Sheesh, now if only I could figure out what the people in the UK are talking about when they constantly complain about bad weather. 😀

Now, the fact that it gets dark so bloody early is a different story.

  1. Yeah, the Mrs. and I used to travel to London on cheap fares in the winter all the time. The weather was okay … but the early darkness kind of weirded me out. You don’t realize how far north the U.K. is thanks to the warming tropical winds. In December, the sun sets around 3:45 pm.

    Glad you’re having fun, though!

  2. London weather really isn’t that bad… I’m glad you got some good weather and sunshine during your short visit here!

  3. Glad you are enjoying yourself and that the weather is cooperating. London is one of my favorite cities.

  4. “bloody early.” I see you’ve already picked up on the wacky British idiosyncracies of our language. 😉

  5. The weather is unusally mild at the moment, and if you think it’s getting dark early now, you should try being here around the winter solstice. Of course the trade off is that we get wonderfully long evenings in the summer.
