OH DEAR

At the end of the fete du vin they had planned a huge fireworks extravaganza, with thousands of wine-filled, sun-kissed festive throngs all over the quays watching the show.

But météofrance forecast a nasty storm, so they cancelled it.

(no storm came)


Then last night was the first night of the reenactment of the battle of Castillon, which ended the Hundred Years' War and returned Aquitaine to French rule. Also various open air music concerts were planned.

But météofrance forecast a nasty storm, so they cancelled it.

(no storm came)

This time we did have some brief downpours of rain and thunder rumbled a bit. But nothing that would make you batten down the hatches or cancel your stuff.

I hope météofrance doesn't swing the other way, though!
