"If it rains while the sun is shining another widow will get married." An old proverb. You would have needed a Las Vegas Drive-in Chapel today in Alhaurin El Grande, since the eligible Widows would have numbered more than several less after the bipolar weather we enjoyed here today.
The BBC news was full of a stabbing at the sales in Oxford Street, someone was shot in Salford: I'm happy that it rained while the sun shone in Alhaurin today. It's safe here, at least. Sure, people can't drive, turn up late - or not at all - but for the most part, there are many more smiles than frowns.
Besides, if the strange weather makes a widow happy, who are we to complain?
