London – Typically Tropical

A final word from Jim Ashling.

It’s great to see my US colleagues when they come to London for the Online show, but they see a drop of rain on their first day and wouldn’t you know it, the old London stereotype gets an airing. Of course, it’s always raining.

So here’s my chance to set the record straight with a view of Olympia Grand Hall taken on Wednesday. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky all day. And by the way guys, guess what the weather’s like back home in Philly today? Hint: take an umbrella.

One Response to “London – Typically Tropical”

    If the weather this week was tropical (and I confess I saw no palm trees growing along Kensington High Street), then I must disagree with Jim about the “typicalness” of the temperature. To quote Information Today, Inc.’s CEO as we exited the exhibition hall the other day, “Global warning isn’t all bad.” It was a tongue in cheek comment, I should stress.
