Early Morning in South West France Sky On Fire

How often do you see this?

It was last Thursday, about 7 o’clock in the morning.

And the sky was on fire.

Just for 5 minutes or so.

Then the sky went back to normal.

Did it really happen?!

What’s The Weather Like Today?

This is the weather forecast, 6th July 2012 for my region of Penne du Tarn in South West France. Every morning come rain or shine, I open my emails and ‘La Chaine Meteo’ have delivered the daily weather for me.

Well, not too bad. Martin will be pleased – he is building our swimming pool* at the moment and today’s weather is perfect – not too hot – a bit of sun – a bit of cloud – and above all – NO RAIN!

The next 12 days look rather up and down temperature wise – but HEY – at least we haven’t torrential rain for the next 3 days – pour old England – pour Wimbledon. Fingers crossed for good weather during the Olympics!

*The Swimming Pool Project is progressing. More photos will be coming soon.
