A nice Aquitaine pattern of summer weather

We've settled into a nice summer pattern. Basically day time the sun roasts you - you get into the mid 30s. Then at night time we have storms.

For us it's quite nice, though you have to get into the habit of managing the ventilation of the house. You open all the windows in the morning to let in the cool morning air. Then you close the shutters as the sun starts to shine.

For some people it's a problem. The plentiful rain is keeping the drainage ditches full, and the warmth is providing great conditions for the reprodution of ... mosquitos.

Big, juicy, fierce ones.

We are pretty high up in Pessac, so we don't have drainage ditches and the puddles in the garden are normally gone before the day ends.
