Oh.. the weather outside is frightful....


The weather here in Iraq is starting to turn chilly. I think it got up to about 110 degrees yesterday!! You may think that is funny but, compared to Kuwait City's temperature of 148 degrees a few weeks ago it is really mild weather. Last year towards the end of October I experienced what could only be described as Fall weather. It only lasted about three weeks and then it turned miserably cold and wet, which reminds me, the ground over here is unbelievably fertile. During the first few days of the cold, rainy, miserable, winter, grass so thick and pretty, started sprouting up everywhere. Of course when the two months of winter were over and the rain stopped coming, the grass quickly blended into the the desert colored ground and became almost invisible to the point that unless a sheep or camel or goat was eating it, you wouldn't even see it. This place has definately been an experience!!
