>> Friday, October 4, 2013 – cold weather, ferries, first rains, rainy season, weather in October, wild flowers
|Autumn crocuses in a field in the Pedi valley.|
|Preparing for celebrations at the little chapel on my corner on Tuesday. It drizzled intermittently with squalls all day but the main rain held off until evening.|
|The name means The One Who Comes Swiftly.|
|A grape vine with ambition on the Kali Strata.|
|Rain clouds over Pedi at 7 a.m. on Wednesday morning.|
|On a clear day you can see forever - almost.|
We are all shivering in the sudden cold and smelling vaguely of mothballs as winter clothes that haven't been worn since March are being dug out of storage. Temperatures have plummeted as first everything was soaked in two days of rainy weather on Tuesday and Wednesday and then the wind swung to the north, bringing with it unseasonably low temperatures. It was about 12 degrees centrigrade last night which is chilly indeed when a week ago it was still warm enough to eat outside at night. It is not expected to get much about 20 degrees today. The weather is expected to improve from Sunday when the wind drops and should settle into the more seasonable mid twenties.
Have a good weekend.
