Yesterday I wrote that autumn was setting in by Sicilian standards.  Today, however, several acquaintances declared it to be winter: after all, there was an afternoon storm and the temperature had the temerity to "plunge" to a mere 16 C.  

Poor drainage makes even a shower look like a flood and anyone with the misfortune or lack of foresight to be a pedestrian during a downpour will quickly become drenched, not necessarily from above. Passing cars have no respect for such foolhardy creatures.  As you see, pedestrians during a rainstorm are not exactly numerous on the via Sacro Cuore so umbrella collisions are unlikely.

Time for another gelato vol-au-vent

I wish you'd send some of that rain down here, Pat! We need it badly...very badly. Bush fires everywhere. It's so dry.

The past two summers were extremely wet, so there's a lot of fodder that is a huge fire hazard. It's very concerning.

Take care. :)

My thoughts exactly, WW. Hi, Lee. I hadn't realised it was still so bad over there. It must be very worrying. You take care too. xx
