Cold enough?

A few months ago, a friend of mine in Nairobi was moaning that winter had arrived, with a daytime high of 19°C, which he found to be “freezing”.

I pointed out that at the time of receiving his email, it was 6°C in southern England, and we were approaching Summer!

Now, as I sit here at mid-day, the outside temperature is -1°C. Everything is covered in white frost and although it looks very fairy-tale-like, it is COLD!

I have a dream that my girlfeirnd and her children visit the UK at sometime soon. She has always lived near Malindi, where the temperature never drops below 22°C in the dead of night. What would they make of a British winter? Or a British Summer, come to that?

    Whenever I am in Kenya, I spend some time on the Coast where I find it too hot. However, Kisii with a average day temperature of 25°C is lovely.
    This morning, it is -8°C, which is cold, even by our standards.
