  1. Brume...something you sweep with. Oh wait, that's not spelled that way. Never heard of this version! It definitely sounds like something that would mysteriously hang out over an English moor, however. :)

    2. What a great word. And what a great word for where I am -- misty, foggy Galicia. Can I say "brumey"?

    3. That's right, you're in Spain. The rain in Spain stays mainly...oh well, enough of the silliness. :-) I believe the correct term would be "brumous," Elizabeth.
