One minute you're grilling steaks on the BBQ, the next minute the skies open and the whole garden is flooded.
I really love spring and summer storms. Our auvent (covered terrace) protects us from the worst of the weather, and we can enjoy the son et lumiere in reasonable comfort.
Last night's storm was very wet, but without the enjoyment of the thunder and lightning. There was a bit, but not to the noisy extent that I really enjoy. In fact the rain was so heavy that we were eventually forced indoors; and copious enough to bring up some Cèpes in 10 days time.
Such is life in our neck of the woods. A 27 C swim in the afternoon, a BBQ for supper, then a vicious downpour to accompany one's glass of port.
One has to wonder what the morrow will bring.
