Living in the Middle East means living in an arid climate with virtually no rain or clouds or any sign of precipitation, including hot winds of the Arabian desert that blow scorching across your skin like a hairdryer on high and a constant sun that blazes down on you with oppressive heat. Don’t forget the humidity too to mix in with the 50˚Celsius plus temperatures during the summer months.
Being back in Nova Scotia for the summer, I’ve come to re-appreciate the weather, with its typical constant change in a single day. Everyone here talks about the weather because it changes so much! Walk into a Tim Horton’s coffee shop and listen to the conversations. It is almost a guarantee someone is talking about the forecast for the day!
I am really enjoying the cool, damp rainy days that are so relaxing and cozy. Waking up each day to the fog’s mystical embrace of the shoreline and the way the sun can brighten your mood as it makes its presence known as it burns away the dampness to illuminate the sky!!!!
Here are some pictures of yesterday’s weather as I crossed the Halifax harbor on the Woodside Ferry on my way to Halifax.
