the furnace!

Just got back to Spain yesterday, after two weeks in Ireland where the temperatures never reached much above 18-19ºC, was the hottest day of the Summer! Ok, it’s normally not too warm in Éire but this year August has also been very mild in Spain, particularly in Cercedilla where maximums barely exceeded 28ºC until the final days of the month – the 27th of August saw 29.7ºC – and where the normal thing would be to have several days well over 3oºC. So, as September and the return to Hispania drew near, i was feeling confident that i had this Summer licked..but was i wrong! 32.2ºC awaited me yesterday, Tuesday the 2nd of, though happily a stormy downpour cooled things down a bit in the early evening.

Posts coming about the trip to my old country, Hibernia, the country of Winter.


About coldspringdays

Éireannach is ea mé, i mo chonaí insan Spáinn. Rugadh mé i lár na tuaithe, ar feadh blianta bhí mé ag teitheadh uaithi, i bhfad as an tuath, ach sa deireadh d'fhill mé, ar ais go dtí an tuath.. An Irishman am I, settled in Spain. Born was I in the middle of the country, for years I ran from it, far from the country, but in the end I returned, back to the country..
