In So. California, summer is HOT, dry, HOT, and well, HOT. Santa Ana winds make your mind a bit wonky and entire mountain ranges burst into flame.
In Lorraine, summer is a bit different. It can be hot, then overcast, then sultry, then blustery, then rainy, then hot - all in the same day.
Don't like the weather? Blink your eyes.
It's tough deciding what to wear when I leave the apartment. Sandals and a parka? Sleeveless and an umbrella?
My body is beginning to climatize, as it were. I'm enjoying every single itty bit of sunshine I can soak in. It's such a scarce commodity here, even in the summer. I have to admit, the cool breezes from Brittany feel wonderful. The rains descend from Africa, along with bits of sand. Very wild to think of rain from Africa all the way up here.
