It has warmed up into the 90s now. Hot and really windy, but the sky is sorta hazy today. On the way home last night I noticed that they have started harvesting sugar cane outside of the town I live in. It is not uncommon for the stubble to burn off, that and the dust whipped up by the trade winds makes the air hazy.

It is suppossed to be illegal here now to burn off the fields, the folks that own the ones that were cut yesterday usually just turn that under, but the stuff is really dry and it doesn't take much to get a blaze going. And there are folks that still like to see a fire that is about twenty feet high and a few miles long. Those are pretty spectacular.

There are some huge fields on the Interamerican Highway on the way into the city which used to be owned, or sold to a large, European food conglomerate. I remember driving one night about ten years ago, and seeing a fire in the stubble that looked like it stretched about five or six kilometers. Awesome is an understatement. Think about that next time y'all are sucking on a 'lifesaver', harping about the evils of smoking etc.

In the far west of France, in a beautiful but savage place called Brittany, there's a town that faces the sea with a bay at its feets where well-known sailors are trying to break records like Jules Verne's Trophy. There I live. Today after a calm but foggy morning and a sunny afternoon, the evening brought us back strong wind and rain, if I open the window I can feel the taste of salt on my lips...People say that you can have the four seasons in one day in Brittany, it was the case today... wink.gif

Hey, Leo! Are you near the ocean? From my limited experience in the tropics (Hawaii, St. Thomas, St. Maarten) the ocean breezes seem to cool things off a bit.

Never been to Panama. Never really thought about it, but judging from the pictures you posted it looks like a beautiful place to visit (live).

Everywhere in Panama is close to the ocean, either one or the other. The country is long and skinny. I live on a Peninsula that sticks down into the Pacific. From the house the ocean is about 25 kilometers. From work, five kilometers. And yes, we get those strong northerly trade winds during the dry season, so that helps a lot to keep the place feeling cool. Of course, if you are out in the sun it doesn't make much difference since we are only between 7 and 8 degrees north. Sunlight is intense.

Leo cool.gif I posted a URL on another thread, but here it is again if anyone is interested. There are a lot of links for pictures.

Go ahead. Rub it in Rose! We'll see how you feel when it's 120 in AZ this summer! tongue.gif

Yeah, one has to appreciate baking in an hot oven out here in the summer time! Funny thing is is that Arizonians have the least amount of any suntan. When we see people with suntans we know they're not from around here! laugh.gif

... currently dusk, clear skies, cool breeze - quite chilly actually. February's usually our hottest month, but the last few days it's been feeling more like autumn... unsure.gif ... would be lucky if we reached 20C today.

The snow is coming down, has been snowing since yesterday morning. Now we have about 6 inches of snow. Some areas are still without electricity since the ice storm Thursday night.

CelticRose is wearing her shorts and I have to wear long johns! biggrin.gif One thing for sure it does paint a pretty picture outside with the snow falling and the trees all laden down with the snow. I'm trying to look on the sunny side, spring is next month.

Maggie I am sorry I am wearing shorts while you all are freezing, But you get to experience that beautiful site of snow and I know that all too well. However it is something we don't experience here in the desert. Now our mountains do and lots of it. Wow! I almost envy you. I love snow! Just don't like to have to drive or walk in it............I always slip and fall on my bum. laugh.gif Just wait till our summers here! OMG! We barely wear any clothing at all! laugh.gif And of course stay inside with lots of air-conditioning. wink.gif biggrin.gif

Yet another blizzard. We are at the cabin and get to drive home (only a 2 hour drive on dry roads). Going to have to leave this fun so can get ready to leave. sad.gif cry.gif
