Ciao Bill,

I have only a minor correction for you.

"ci sono ventisette gradi" is more common than "sono ventisette gradi". Other than that, great job!


A presto,

Ciao, Lei usa la parola stessa "nuvoloso" per l'inglese traduzione. (Hello, you use the same word for "cloudy" in the English translation.)
