Buttoning up

All the cliches are true. Southerners are wusses.

At the first sign that the weather was turning cold this week, everybody wrapped up as if destined for a trek to the Arctic. It was incredible. Gloves, scarves, hats, multiple layers: what was with these people? The daytime temperature can't have been much lower than 9 or 10 degrees these past few days, yet folk have been carrying on as if it were below freezing.

Wait till its gets really cold. Wait till it gets as cold as it does in Liverpool, where the wind can numb you to the point that you can't even move. Or maybe that won't happen down here. Maybe this is winter for these people. Me, I'm still wearing T-shirts.

Anyway, here's how beautiful it looked in my local park first thing this morning.
