What a storm !

They warned us that last night's storm would be worse than Thursday night's, and so it proved to be. Midnight found us all charging round the house making sure everything that could be fixed down was fixed down, and amazed by the torrential rain, the fierce, gusting wind and the constant flashes of lightning.

This morning I read that the central station in Bordeaux is flooded, along with several streets.

Here the roof seems OK, we have electricity and internet,

and nothing seems to have moved much, except for a huge branch of next door's massive larch, which has broken off, fallen, broken the fence and blocked our driveway.
