Glastonbury, England

Fields near Glastonbury, England

If there’s one thing that is certain, it’s that England is green. In fact, it is very green. Clearly, it must rain A LOT to make it this green! Right? And yet, if you look at annual rainfall in Glastonbury (southern England), it varies between 45-90 mm. If you look at a rainfall in a place, like, say, Washington DC (which isn’t a desert, but also not known for its torrential downpour), it varies between 50-100mm/month! How can this be? How can this English city and Washington have roughly the same average annual rainfall? England is the rainiest place on Earth! But no, not according to the numbers. Basically, English weather is grey, overcast, with a daily spritz of rain. And in DC, when it rains, it pours – and then it’s finished. So while English weather means lots and lots of beautiful green fields – it also means consistent greyness (note: see sky in above photo). That said, England is still one of the loveliest places on Earth!

    • I mean…I was there for 5 months…and all of my pictures are a bit dreary and washed-out. Then you look at my pics from living in Spain less than a year later…what a difference!! Blue, orange, pink, clear, dramatic, cloud-filled, you name it! (That said, I’d move back to the UK in a heartbeat! 😉 )

      Just heard him make the joke about the the Canary Islands! It’s unfortunately very true…pour England.
