Having suffered summery temperatures for much of March – and, some would say, much of the Winter – the month of April seems intent on subjecting us to a dose of normality. Getting under way with cooler temperatures, considerable amounts of rainfall and even snowfall, it would appear that the weather is out to please those of us who prefer cold Spring days(!) Unfortunately it will take some doing to make up for such a horrible, warm, dry Winter. Of course it’s good in so far as the precipitation will at least partially alleviate the situation of drought. But it’s also unfortunate that, after months of dry skies, just when people have a few days of holiday in Semana Santa we get a complete washout. Couldn’t the full moon have brought this weather in January, or even March?
