Yet another ‘alerte orange’ for rain

This has been a depressingly relentless week of heavy cloud, mist and rain.  Once again we have had a night of heavy rain and more forecast for today.

What a year, with all those storms while I was in hospital.  The olive harvest has just finished and Jackie, who is largely resonsible for restoring the local olive mill, says this is going to be an awful year.  The local onions – for which this area is famed – are also not much good.  The surfeit of moisture means they will not keep well this winter. A similar story for most other local crops.
