    It has been hissing down here since 11 last night, Strong gusts of wind thunder and lightening and not expected to stop until midday. Already there is damage to some awnings and quite a few gazebos will be in the bin later, just hope the folk on lower ground are OK especially those at the bottom on La Toretta which has recently been repaired after flooding earlier this year.

    Low down on La Toretta is flooded!

    We moved up to a higher pitch on Saturday and the pitch we were on is under 6 inches of water!

    Thats a shame about the damaged equipment. Perhaps tbe storm took them unawares and they never had time to take the awnings down..I can see where their xmas money will be spent this year.

    Oh bugger! I'll just keep this to myself and not mention it to Ginny :whistle:. Now pleased I have a stout awning and I'd better keep the wellies in the van just in case!

    All joking aside, stay safe everyone.

    Rained heavily here overnight but stopped before daylight. I can see blue on the horizon coming from the west so it should arrive in Benidorm sometime after it gets here! Tomorrow looks OK there.

    Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it just did!

    A river now runs through camping La Toretta!

    That's the problem with the rain in Spain, might not rain very often but when it does..........!!
    Hope there is not too much damage and nobody hurt.
