torrential downpour? cold temperatures? tornadoes? YES!
21.06.2010 - 21.06.2010
Weather is NUTS today. I woke up cold (which is weird because of how hot it was over the last couple days) owing to the fact that there was a thick, grey cloud-cover over the area. Over repeated cracks of thunder, I tried to get ahead on my homework. Still, I was quite tired still and couldn't concentrate as much as might be ideal so I gave up after reading about 14 pages and lounged instead.
On my way to breakfast/class, I had to run at full-tilt to avoid getting too water-logged and getting this computer destroyed a la my camera. Thankfully, it's only about 100 meters from my little bungalow to the main building of the hotel where breakfast/class occurs and I arrived unscathed.
Classes were interesting. Generally we covered the history of European integration and the nuts-and-bolts of the various European treaties. I took issue with some of the comments that my professor made regarding the cause of the Greek financial crisis, but I didn't feel that a law-class was the appropriate forum to argue a point of political-economy and history. Still, I might approach her after class tomorrow to engage in some policy discourse.
After class we had lunch. Looking out at the sea, somebody noticed that there were pointy clouds aiming down at the sea. After a while, it became visible that water was swirling around up into the air. Yes! Sea-tornado! What are those called? Not cyclones.... I can't remember....
Just now, the weather mostly cleared and it got hot out again.... No accounting for anything.
