It’s a problem at this time of year

Although the Costa Blanca is reputed to have over 300 days of sunshine a year, that does mean there are sixty days when it will be cloudy or raining and most of those will be at this time of year.

By Easter, the weather is usually beginning to settle down but even that isn’t certain. Two years on the run now we have missed the main parades for Semana Santa because they were rained off. We have our fingers crossed for this year.

Last Sunday, as I reported, Pam and I went to see the parade of comparsas which forms part of the Carnival at Torrevieja. There was supposed to be an even longer parade last night starting at 9pm but unfortunately it had to be called off because of the rain The parade has been rescheduled for 6pm today. Although it is cloudy, the forecast is for it to stay dry. Let’s hope so because the 1,500 people who are due to take part in the parade have put in a lot of time and effort not to mention money to provide a great spectacle for the crowd who are going down to watch.

Those of you who missed it last week and didn’t fancy a late night in Torrevieja on a Saturday night have a second chance to see the spectacle today – don’t forget your brolly though – just in case!
