|Our Village - wind, rain and waves|
The rain -- admittedly, badly needed after the summer's drought -- has been making up for lost time. We've had very little of that Mediterranean sun in recent weeks.

In recent days we've kept the fireplace at the ready in case we lose power, which means we lose heat as well.
