les Davey de France

Alan and Pat live and work in Bordeaux. Alan is a pastor and Pat was a nurse. Now we work with UFM worldwide. Read on! (If you'd like to know what took us to Bordeaux, then start with the archives from September 2004)

Sometimes it does get on your nerves !

I do love Bordeaux. I hope that's clear.
But sometimes the weather here just gets on your nerves.

It rains, rains, rains, rains, rains, rains then rains again.
All the trees in the neighborhood are covered in moss.
Honestly, you'd swear you were in some tropical rainforest somewhere.
Except for the tropical bit.

The drainage ditches in the park have turned into canals.
Little inspection covers for the drains are under such pressure
that they lift and let water bubble everywhere.
Our garden has turned into a quagmire.
I bet our aquifers runneth over !
If we have drought this year it'll be astonishing.

Still in a world where so many millions don't have access to clean water
we should be thankful that gallons of the stuff falls on our head every day.
