It arrived with a vengeance

image We were promised rain at the weekend. It waited until Sunday night when a little fell overnight.

Yesterday though you knew we were in for heavy rain as the skies became decidedly unsettled. Still it waited until about 4:30 in the afternoon when a huge clap of thunder heralded the start of a downpour.

Pam and I were stuck inside the Auditorium where we had attended a talk about Miguel Hernandez. We waited and waited until the rain subsisted enough for us to make it to the car. Then, safely back in the house, we watched as the rain bounced off the pavements around the house and added a good 2cms of water to the pool.

It looks like we could have some more rain today and then the weather will settle back to normal sunshine with light clouds. Our friends are coming out to their villa the other side of the estate. I hope they remembered to pack their umbrellas.
