Wednesday Word: Brumous
lou harper
lou_harper

brumous |ˈbrəməs| adjective literary foggy; wintry.

ORIGIN mid 19th cent.: from French brumeux, from late Latin brumosus (from bruma winter).

That's the local scene from about a month ago—it gets foggy in my 'hood once in a few years. Currently it's summer in LA with sunny skies and temperatures in the eighties. Not a drop of rain in sight. El Niño has been a big disappointment so far.

What a lovely word. I wonder if that's where they got the name for this little chap?
