Yet more crazy weather!
But now it’s heatwave and storms!
This last week (10th-17th March) we’ve been having record temperatures (up as high as 26C), and then today, just before sunset, a most unusual and massive storm approached us from the south-west. Here you can see it approaching ‘chez-nous’ from beyond the Canal Latéral.
Once it hit us, we had continuous thunder for some ten minutes. And by ‘continuous’ we mean exactly that, there was not a single break between thunder claps. It was amazing, and something that neither Jill nor I have ever experienced.
Below is a picture of the hail taken in the car park after the absolutely torrential rain had stopped. If I’d been stupid enough to go out there as it was falling, I doubt you’d have been able to see the gravel 🙂
But we’re not complaining; we needed that water. The last moisture we had was from the snowfall back in early February!
