I should learn never to trust actors or weather forecasters.
Sweeping statement – but one which I believe true at least for certain actors and their song writer colleagues and particularly where weather is concerned. I meant if professional Weather Forecasters can’t get it right what hope have the mere amateurs.
My Fair Lady has a lot to answer for regarding accuracy !
I have been to Spain on numerous occasions and without a word of a lie be it visiting La Manga, Barcelona, Benidorm (yes I’ve been to the Costa Brit Pub), Salou or many other costal towns I have got wet.
The rain for me has never stayed on the plain, it has followed me around Spain like I am some sort of rain-god, soaking me through at every opportunity. If I were ever reincarnated as one of the figures in those novelty clocks shaped as houses that also predict the weather by one or other of the characters making an appearance, I would want to be the figure that comes out carrying an open brolly – just in case.
Perhaps I shouldn’t be the eternal weather optimist and learn not to just distrust the forecasters but also Rex Harrison (although to be fair to him his prediction that “In Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire, hurricanes hardly ever happen” is pretty accurate).
Or maybe to be sure of staying dry I should hedge my bets and just like the figure in the clock, pack an umbrella instead.
