Hey Nelson....thanks so much for the likes and wonderful comments. The portrait of the lady just seemed so emotional in prayer that I could not help but relate it to prayer for world peace .....sonething so uncertain these days. Thanks again.

John :)

Thank you Nelson for the like and great comments on my Samburu Warrior. They are very much appreciated. Pastel pencil are a lot easier to manage than coloured pencils, I found them a lot easier to blend, especially for skin tones.

Looking  at those numbers again I had to work it out. so if it  rained every other day in the London area where I live we'd  get 0.12 inches of rain each of to days so if layed a coin flat on the floor it's  face would probable still not be covered with a days rain .so it's not as wet as you think it is.

Admittedly there have been days when 2 inches of rain have fallen in less than an hour which causes a lot of flooding

We used to get a lot more fog years ago but there only seem to be only about one foggy day in a year now the weather has changed

I think the wet and rainy old England was started by some of the first soldier came over to fight in ww1 and ww2 who came from some of Americas warmer dryer states. Many of them staying in tents until the invasion of Europe.

We do have more cloudy days than some of the places and many of the northern city's in the UK do get a higher rainfall but only comparable to many of the city's in the USA.

A lot of smoke in clouds can start rain and smogg as we all used coal fires back then it could be darker because of the smoke added to that there was fired started by the estimated 30.000 tonnes of bombs the fell on British cities that killed 40.000 people so things were a bit grim

So a young US soldier sitting in a army tent the weather became very important thing.

London get less than half the rain of the following city's in the US

New Orleans, 62.7 inches
Miami, Florida, 61.9 in. Birmingham, Alabama, 53.7 in. Memphis, Tennessee, 53.7 Jacksonville, Florida, 52.4 in. Orlando, 50.7 in.
New York, New York, 49.9 in. Houston, Texas, 49.8 in.
Atlanta, Georgia, 49.7 in.

London England 22.9 in

Now if I was sitting down in a certain part of Hawaii I'd be moaning a lot about the weather

Hawaii Mauna Kea 404. 4 in

That's one he'll of a lot of wet stuff

Our avarage rainful  isn't a great deal more than yours  and looking, some parts of Hawaii  gets more than us . our Rainful Is a lot better than many US states but at times we do feel like we have webbed feet because we don't  always have the heat to dry things off.   We all enjoy our wet day out at the theme park sunday on a hot sunny day you can wait for 3 hours for a ride on a wet day it goes down to 20 to 30 minute and some you could walk straight on so if I wanted  more rides I'd  pick on a wet day
