Not in the brochure

So southern Spain is subject to violent storms in Winter, torrential rain in Autumn and it lies on an earthquake zone. Is there anything else we should have been told by the agents who sold us the house?

I wouldn't have minded if the salesman didn't live here. In fact he'd lived in the area for over fifteen years and must have experienced the worst that nature could throw at him during that time. Funny he never mentioned any of this. Instead he spoke of over three hundred days of sunshine, of the joy of living for up to eight months of the year in just shorts and a t-shirt.

The consolation is that Spring is on its way. Once the weather is settled and we can go back in the pool all this will be a dull memory until next year perhaps.
