Stormy weather

The hot weather of late led to a very short, sharp thunderstorm last night.  We were catering for guests in our all-electric kitchen when the power went out shortly after we saw the first lightning.  We were lucky - other people not far away had a 5-hour power cut, but we got ours back after about 40 minutes.

In the mean time we were running about rescuing the parasols and outdoor tables and chairs from the awsome gusts of wind - the strongest that we have experienced here.  For the most part there was no harm done.  Our guests got ther meal on time, and nothing relating to the gîte got broken.

The greenhouse was not so lucky, but the aubergine seedlings survived.
