One of the great pleasures of living here just now is the almost constant sunlight, and the way it illuminates the trees that surround the Foundation’s grounds. Yesterday I spent an hour or so watching the skies as the sun slowly set behind me.
Well, it's a good job I grabbed that opportunity. After ten days of sunshine and balmy temperatures in the 50s and 60s (12-16 C) today has dawned cold, cloudy, with snow in the forecast. As my old rat-catching mate Walter used to say, 'If it gets much colder I shall `ave to put on another pair of braces, mate!' [braces in England are suspenders - and suspenders in England are... well, slightly suggestive.]
