April in DC. Just like home!
It was 79F (26 degrees C) on Monday when I took the photo on the left in Tock's favourite squirrel-chasing park, blue sky shining through abundant cherry blossoms. On Tuesday, it was 40F (4 degrees C) and abysmal when I took the second picture. In fact it rained so hard the "7.30am-run-please-yes-EVERY-day-you-lazy-humans!" husky did not emerge from his crate until 11am. [Rain does have some perks]
Imagine my joy as a Londoner to find there is something very familiar about DC, and it's the unpredictability of April weather. Rain is good for my garden so you won't catch me complaining (yet). As long as it's just an April thing!
