The Danger of Spring in Glasgow

The first bright, warm weekend in Glasgow brings traffic snarls and makes driving a nightmare: The beautiful weather appears to dazzle and distract drivers used to rain and fog, while the sidewalks are flooded with pedestrians escaping their gloomy houses, similarly blinded by the light, stunned by the heat (all of 60F/15C), and wandering heedlessly into the streets. After a harrowing journey to the grocery store after church, we are relieved when we arrive safe and sound at home.
