Not just the ducks

The farmers on the Vega Baja will no doubt be delighted with the heavy rain we suffered yesterday. It solves the immediate problem of getting much needed water for their crops.

Thankfully the thunderstorm that passed over us in the morning cleared and the torrential rain subsided to a light drizzle. It is still drizzling this morning and is forecast to continue for the rest of the day.

Apparently there was a lot of flooding in some areas. I'm told that a motorist, obviously unaware of the dangers of the flooded roads, aquaplaned his 4x4 BMW into the ditch on the side of the CV95 . That is the problem with living in a country that doesn't have a lot of rain. We don't have drains in the streets and although the main roads ditches each side, the camber often leaves pockets of water on the surface.

Our friends, Rachel and David arrived yesterday from England for a holiday. They probably left better weather back there! Still one thing we know here in Spain is that bad weather doesn't last and it is only a matter of time before the sun comes out again. The forecast is for a break in the rain on Friday.
