We've had temperamental weather patterns for the past few days and large thunderstorms are not uncommon in the part of the world, but what we had today was massive by any definition: bright streaks of lightning, window-shaking thunder, multiple power outages, and rain so think we could barely see to the neighbor's house. The storms started at about 10:00 this morning and lasted until mid-afternoon. By 5:00pm (just about 30 minutes ago), the sky was clear, the sea was blue, the air was crisp, and there was, with the exception of the still-saturated grass, absolutely no trace of storm.
15 minute ago the view looked like this from our living room. The people on that cruise ship are getting into Nice at just the right time.
So we spent the day indoors. Homework. Cycling and the entire French Open final on TV. Steak fajitas for dinner.
