I read about tornadoes in Mississippi and even in North Carolina, and I'm grateful we don't have to worry about that kind of weather here. Yesterday, the weather forecaster on France 2 TV was downright giddy with joy, predicting a week of summery weather conditions in France.
For us, that means temperatures as "high" as 75º F this week! That's not what I immediately think of as summertime heat, given my North Carolina background, but in fact it does qualify for that description here in the Loire Valley. It's pleasant and I'll take it.
