    Watch out for hail storms if you are heading south, motorhomes don`t repair easily! :Sad:

    Look for the green triangles for large hail.

    Hot and sunny in the Dordogne, but it can change. Pours with rain, then sun comes out and up to 25C again within hours.

    Well it wasn't last week when we were there.

    The last three days here on the Costa Blanca have been brilliant but it is cloudy, rainy and blowing a hooly today. Its forecast to be the same for the next few days.

    We had to have Cod, Chips, Mushy Peas, Bread Butter and a cuppa to cheer ourselves up.

    The main target of our interest at the moment is watching people play with their Sat Dishes in a hopeless effort to watch Coronation St. :RollEyes:

    As I understood it, you have to be able to at least see the sky. :Wink:

    My caravan in Loche July 2004, hit by a freak hailstorm resulted in a new side and new roof when only 3 months old. The site was devastated with other caravans and campervans destroyed when trees snapped in half and fell on them.:cry:
