No, no, it was great! Really. It's just that florifee's specifics are in true Venutian dialect, rather than your rather coarse Martian. Easier to understand, you know.jelloshotsrule said:so i take it my post was totally unhelpful???? bastard!
Good advise. We have really had some great weather overall compared to most May months here so far. But that can change in a heartbeat! By now we should be seeing some hot days with high humidity. But so far it has been nice overall, save for a few days that approached what we normally would have seen.floriflee said:This time of year the weather can be somewhat unpredictable. We are currently in the midst of a week of scattered T-storms, but it's still been pretty warm the last couple of weeks--around 20-25 degrees Celsius, but it can still get a bit cool at night so a light jacket at least would be in order. Humidity is moderate, maybe around 50-60%. I'd bring a travel umbrella just in case.
In addition to that I'd also recommend the following:
1. sunglasses and/or sun hat for the nicer days
2. comfortable walking shoes since if she plans on going to the National Mall she could end up doing a lot of walking from one end to the other.
3. pair of light pants or jeans and maybe a pair of shorts.
4. shirts that are on the medium to lighter-weight side. I think in most cases you'll be able to get by with short sleeves and a jacket around this time of year.
EDIT: 5. Just in case she plans on being outside a lot, bring sun screen.
Hope that helps!
She's gone to the coast for a couple of days, so I guess she'll be cool. Coming back Wednesday, so I'd better start clearing up soon...floriflee said:So, skunk, any word on whether the missus has been able to brave the hot weather we've had here in D.C. the last few days? I hope she took our advice and packed a mixture of lighter-weight clothes.
