Welcome from someone in the south west of the UK where we have much the same, overcast, low cloud, hill mist and rain, rain and more rain, but then it is our winter and more typical of this time of the year, and thankfully no devastating floods to put up with.
Lets hope for better "photography weather" soon, then you'll be able to put your new camera to the test, hope you enjoy the experience.
Wecome and we are quite a few here who are quite active . U will love this cute litte camera and It has one of the best JPEG engines in MFT world. Hope to see some images from u soon .
