Just in case you think that I am suffering in 33 degree heat every day...
The clouds gathered yesterday afternoon over the Taygetos mountains behind me. I was hoping for a deluge. My olive trees would love it and there is something truly comforting about sitting inside your nice warm, dry hovel as the rain lashed down outside. Besides which it would have cooled the air making sleep that much easier at night. So what if the mud track to Kambos would become like the Somme? I have navigated it before in such a state.
In the end the rainfall was short and modest. The rain was warm, I'm sure my trees were grateful but it did not exactly live up to its billing as storms go.
