It’s been raining. That’s an understatement. We were well below normal rainfall until this week. I don’t know where we are now, except under water. It’s beautiful (I say). It’s awful (San Geraldo says). However, I will admit it limits what we can do — except on our newly enclosed terrace!

|FROM THE DRY AND CYCLONIC-WIND–FREE TERRACE.|
|STANDING IN FRONT OF OUR BUILDING AT 11:00.|
|DEBATING HOW FAR TO WALK FOR COFFEE.|
|BAR BARBORU, BELOW OUR BUILDING, SEEMS LIKE A GOOD IDEA.|
|AROUND THE CORNER EARLY THIS MORNING

|THE USUALLY DRY CHANNEL NEARBY.
MUDDY WATERS FLOWING DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAINS…
|…AND CARVING A WIDER CHANNEL INTO THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA.|
|BACK ON THE TERRACE.|
|STILL DRY AND CYCLONIC-WIND–FREE!|
Appropriate music for the day…
