Summer has ended

Yes, even here in the south of France.  I was woken at six by heavy rain and this afternoon we have had intermittent rain and thunder.  I’m trying to remember when it last rained.  I know we had a violent storm in mid-July.  I think it might have rained once in August.

We’ll probably only have a couple of days of rain, but it will bring the temperatures down.  Two days ago the afternoon temperature was 35 degrees; I suspect that it will be at least ten degrees cooler over the coming week.

After a cool start in June it has been a remarkable summer. Pity it had to end now, as I have more visitors arriving tomorrow.
