In the weather report for Orihuela that I posted on Thursday, did I mention the wind or the pouring rain? No; well neither did the weather chanel Meteo.
The wind picked up yesterday afternoon (as it has done on several afternoons just lately) and was blowing a hoolie last night. At least the skies were blue and the sun shone brightly during the daytime.
This morning though it is heavily overcast and raining. The good news is that the wind seems to have dropped and for the moment, we have electricity.
Update as of 10:30. The skies have mostly cleared to blue and the sun is shining once again. At least the rain privide much needed water for the fields.
