It's 10 days until we arrive in Prague, which means a very important element of the vacation preparation can begin: The obsessive checking of the 10 day forecast on Weather.com.
Right now, things are looking good. Looks like we'll be leaving L.A. in 75 and sunny, arriving in New York for 71 and mostly cloudy, then winging our way to Frankfurt, where it will be mostly cloudy and 67. Our final destination of Prague comes up as 67 and partly cloudy. (My mother has a theory that there are two weeks a year when all the temperatures in the northwern hemisphere are the same. Looks like we're traveling on one of them.)
This, of course, raises all sort of questions in my mind about packing. It's getting down to 50 at night in Prague which is - OK, OK, not cold at all - but I'm from L.A., so it's kinda not warm. To protect against all eventualities, I'm considering dressing like an eskimo on the plane (since I've never been too warm on a plane, ever) and it'll save room in the suitcase. Medium-level jacket and scarf? Jeans and boots?
