On Friday night a big storm swept through South West France. We didn't hear that much about it at first but gradually realised it was pretty significant, causing much damage and flooding. As our roof tiles have only just gone on we fully expected to hear that they had blown away! Well, apparently we were lucky and according to the neighbours the builders were back today finishing off the roof to the Tower.
Apparently the commune was without electricity for 4 days, prompting Ian to look into purchasing a small generator for emergencies.
