Twas another beautiful day in paradise, Sunny, not too hot - just enough to sweat a bit, but the breeze was wonderful. I think it was about 78 today.  This is our dry season so we haven't seen much rain in the last couple of week - but we did just get a shower.

A little warmer down on the finca, but still very nice.  The workers were playing soccer today. Can you imagine that? Hector was telling me that he was filling a little out of shape so he went an played soccer. This is a man involved in rebuilding a house and cutting down trees during the week and he is worried about not getting enough excercise....  :o

By the way, I had visitors this last week - A Canadian Businessman and a Costa Rican partner. The Costa Rican had been sending him weather forcast for a while, the revenge, the businessman had him travel to Canada in the middle of winter. He left San Jose when it was 27 degrees Celsius, and arrived in Canada where it was -27 degrees Celsius. He decided to stop sending the weather forcast. "No vale de pena!"

(It wasn't worth the pain)

So, how did I end up here anyway?

Chet, I figgered y'all would get dumped on with snow on Saturday or Today.  I moved out of the Rochester, Minnesota area in the nick of time! On Friday we were supposed to get a snowstorm that would dump up to 12 inches of snow on us but it slithered south of us and dumped about 20" of heavy wet snow on Rochester and surrounding communties. Then I figgered it was headed your way.  Never was good at figgering nohow. ::)   The Twin Cities TV stations told me that Spring officially came yesterday.  I'd have never known it if they hadn't told me. ;D

Charlie,
We were in Rochester a week ago. Their snow was pretty much non existent. It had started snowing the day we left.
We didn't get that much here, maybe about 6 or 8 inches, but it was wet and heavy.

Well, I just got my new wonder-clock in the mail.

Bought it on ebay..  It tells me time date and most importantly the temperature in the lounge room.

It's currently 28C, but I have had the air conditioner on all day, thankfully.

It's currently about 32C outside.

It's Autumn, so the average is mid 20's and winter gets down to low 20's, sometimes at night it gets down around 10-15C, that's cold...

I can't believe all the snow at Jeff's place!!!  Would be good fun to visit. For a short while.

asy :D

One of the things it is hard for me to adjust to here in Costa Rica is no markers for the seasons.  All we have is Wet Season ( the tourist type called it the Green Season ) and dry season.  The wet season is about 8 months and they called it Winter (invierno) and the 4 month dry season is called summer.

What is weird you all talking about Spring - and we haven't even had winter yet. 

Of course, when I was in the great white north I used to just about die waiting for spring, especially since it really didn't arrive until about April 15th - right after taxes.
