Last night we were treated to rolling thunder storms, lots of lightning and a fair bit of rain in squally downpours. This morning there was a lot of water and the terrace threatened to overflow indoors. As soon as the rain eased off we investigated the drain, poked it clear of leaves with the mop handle and dug a channel the other side of the fence into the vineyard with the dustpan. Now only the grassy area is still under water.
Thank you for your good wishes :ymhug:

It absolutely tipped down yesterday evening and blew a hooley during circuit training (!) and while I drove home. Today is bright and sunny with a bit of a breeze. Apparently 7 metre swells are forecast this weekend, which will make the surfers happy !

That swell mixed with high tides!!

All the blocades and warning signs are up around here.

Fab rough sea yesterday evening. Watching the chalutiers enter the port at Le Guilvinec last night was interesting!

It lashed down here too - one hell of a racket on the windows on the south side of the house. The grande marée in Saint Malo would have been spectacular ... but it was at 6.20am so too dark to photograph !! But I'm sure someone will have done something.

Thunder storms for near as damn it 14 hours. Lots of rain, which flooded my newly tiled but not yet grouted terrace. I cannot see the grouting being done anytime soon with the need for everything to dry out and then the forecast of frosts for the next few nights.

While putting plants under shelter ready for the first proper frost (air temperature less than 0 degrees C- predicted for tonight - I found a plant pot holder that was emptied the other day. It had just short of 2 inches (50mm) water in it - so must have come from last night's storm.

And just for spice, now it is sleeting. Welcome winter.

A little more snow this morning. Only settling in the delves between the roof tiles, but winter is on its way and the first goldfinches have arrived at the bird table this morning.
