Rain on Opposite Sides of the World

Mt Arunachala, Tiruvannamalai, South India
After a week of record breaking heat in Colorado cooler weather has finally arrived. I have been watching the Tiruvannamalai weather reports as well since it has also been hotter there than normal for this time of year. It looks as if the rains have finally arrived in South India since the faithful weather bloggers of Chennai (billed as 'an enthusiastic group of amateur meteorologists') are posting excited comments on their site.

Boulder Flatirons, Colorado
Today the high is only 66 degrees Fahrenheit in Boulder (about 18 Celsius). My husband has just arrived from South India recently and is feeling the 'cold'. I am personally enjoying my sweaters that were in storage for two years... immensely.

The mountains west of our apartment here in Boulder looked amazingly like Mt. Arunachala with wispy clouds obscuring the view of the higher peaks this morning after a major thunderstorm last night. Winter weather seems just around the corner on a day like today.
