Climate caprice

Abu Dabbling
(from whom I borrowed the photo) describes here eloquently the consequences of three days of rainfall in the Sandlands.

And has this to say:
"The temperature in the open desert dropped to minus three Celsius at dawn on Wednesday for the second straight day, while passengers landing at Kuwait airport were greeted by minus one Celsius."

My two-cents-worth for today is to note that here in Munich where a fiercely frigid January is the norm, at 8 o'clock yesterday evening (four hours after the early winter sunset) the the temperature was a ridiculously mild 8 degrees Celsius. And the weekend will see even warmer weather.
