Proof Negative!

I'll show you what I mean when I grouse a bit about the weather, and this is after a Monday night storm, and a wet, grey, windy Tuesday and Wednesday. Here is the next few days' forecast from Weather Underground:  So today is probably going to be a Museum Day, and we're also planning to head to the oyster bar at Marché des Capucins for lunch and to pick up some goodies. It's all covered!

  1. Looks like you're having a good time in spite of the meteorological conditions! The weather in Europe this year has been very unpredictable - it's been terrible in London too. But a museum day is always a good idea.

    1. We did have three lovely warm days on the weekend. And I have a very good mystery to hunker down with, and a big pot of tea . . .

  2. I have no words! It's dreadful, dreadful weather.

  3. It's been thoroughly lousy in Spain, too, especially in the north. We're talking flooding at levels unseen in the last 30 years or so, houses and roads washed away. Which of course has nothing to do with climate change!

    Sending you a little virtual sunshine from Madrid, where today it's 21 degrees and blue skies. (Yesterday was 15 and rainy. Yug.)

    Enjoy the museum day!

    1. We actually ditched even the museum idea today for a prolonged lunch at a brasserie 'round the corner and an afternoon of reading and tea. . . Yug indeed!

  4. Did you see the pictures of Lourdes? Weather has been an issue this year in Europe.We get to practise resilience and acceptance. How's that for a different outlook? I must say that museums are definitely where to be this week according to your forecast.

    1. I do try to keep a sense of perspective. Looking at the rain absolutely pelting down today -- comme vache qui pisse! -- it was easy to see how important a really effective sewer infrastructure would be given the densities of a European city . .

  5. Oh dear, it is awful, isn't it! We usually visit France in October, when rain is to be expected (I remember one unforgettably miserable afternoon exploring Cathar castles in a torrential downpour) and your recipe of a good lunch followed by an afternoon in with a good book is usually ours. It will improve next week I hope, and at least you're renting a house - being cooped up in a small hotel room on a wet day is not funny! Incidentally, loved that term you used yesterday - mal packe. Real French or franglais?

    1. Yes, those rainy afternoons really stick in the memory, don't they?! A young man who came into the brasserie we ended up in had absolutely soaking wet jeans just plastered to his legs.

      And yes, Franglais, but it works, n'est-ce pas?

  6. When I was there, the weather was also horrible. INSANELY BAD. I think that city might just get lots of horrible weather. But that's totally unfair to pull it out when you're on hols.

  7. I know! Someone should have consulted the guest list and upped their game! ;-)
    We've had fabulous weather here in the past, btw. . .

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
