August 2 2000

So it was not just my imagination…

Scott – or is it Frauke now?: “The Hamburger Abendblatt confirmed yesterday what I already knew. Last month had the worst weather for July in the past 50 years. ”

Let’s hope we won’t get the worst August, too!


No, it didn’t rain today, in spite of what the weatherforecast said. It’s as nice as yesterday, only a little windier. Makes the “heat” (25°C) more bearable.

That’s a long time without rain. We’ve had a lot of rain this summer, but luckily it was not so bad that I could say “We haven’t had sun for over 110 days”.

Jethro Tull

Here’s one for André:

Duncan‘s favorite band in the 70s were Jethro Tull. Now he asks what the link between Jethro Tull and John Muir is. He’ll post the solution tomorrow or the day after, he says.

UPDATE: He says he’ll post the solution on Thursday.
