Saint Martin's Day 2013

What Italians call "Saint Martin's Summer," which is the Americans' "Indian Summer," is a period of warm days around the Feast of Saint Martin. Today.

In Sicily this is marked by a glass of Muscat or Passito with hard biscuits. Looking at past posts, last year it was 79 degrees (26 C) on this date.

None of that today. Following an unseasonably HOT October and early November, Autumn has finally arrived. Today it's only around 68 degrees with wind and a touch of rain. Finally.

Summer is nice, but perhaps a bit tiresome when it drags into the Christmas season.
