Hello and welcome!

I expect you're familiar with the Manchester Method of weather forecasting: If you can see the hills, it's going to rain; if you can't, it's already raining :-)

I'm late to the party - must have missed your post. Welcome to HFO, Mythica. It's a great place to find new books, and engage in normal conversation/debate without the skulduggery of certain online websites (see current threads ;) ).

I spent a summer during uni (argh, is it 20 years ago?) working in Philly. I have good memories of it, especially of the hoagies! :cool: We visited lots of rural Pa. too, and went further afield as well. Good times!

Welcome Mythica. From one who started out in the North of England but now lives in North Carolina (via New Jersey)! I hear you about the weather - but surely marrying an Englishman makes it all worth while?!!! :cool:

Yep, I tend to just assume it's going to rain all the time, lol.

You might have stopped by some areas where I'm from then. I'm original from central PA but more recently I lived in the suburbs of Philly - out in Bucks County so it can get pretty rural. I actually have a long family history there dating back to colonial times.

Sometimes :p I love North Carolina! My family (the whole extended family) used to vacation at the Outer Banks for a few years until some naysayers complained the drive was too long.
