It was a lovely Christmas Day yesterday, a lovely and very windy Christmas Day yesterday! Blowing a hoolie doesn’t get near it! But after starting around 10pm on Christmas Eve, the wind, bringing a calima as a seasonal gift, strengthened through the night and mercifully calmed down in the afternoon … because we were eating outside and the whole table would have gone if it hadn’t abated! And then last night it started up again, and this morning it’s rained. And now the sun’s out, so all in all we’ve had virtually all possible weather phenomena in the past 24 hours or so! But they’ve left us a snow-covered Teide! Tenerife has a white Christmas. I hope yours was, and still is, all you could hope for it to be this year of all strange years. Thanks again to Peter Meyers for the lovely photo.
