We are in Verteuil 8n the Charente. There has been no meaningful rain for 4 weeks. The temp s up to over te 30's every day and the next 7 days the same. Thank goodness we have a well for the garden.
We are in Herault, similar here, no well but i have 8 1000ltr tanks for the garden and currently down to 1200ltrs, but i do have another 1800ltrs in a small swimming pool if we get no rain. We do have a bit forcast for this evening so fingers crossed.

It is the BBC. They do tend to be scaremongering.
Are these reports scaremongering?

I'm trying to help out by drinking grape and apple juice (sort of) but it does seem drier here in France than previous Augusts we've experienced.

We are also at Lake constance (Uberlingen) now and experiencing the severe thunder storms. We just can't win we have been hoping for cooler weather and some warm alpine rain but we got the wrath of God instead.

Me and Alex are fully vax and have nhs app for the proof. Kids are 9 and 11 atm. The 11 year old will be 12 when we are in France 🤣. Typical lol. Both have had two vax. Thanks for any answers cheers

Not needed from the 1/8, typical as I'd just spent nearly hundred quid on the 'official' lateral flow tests last week 🙄
