Saint-Aignan in summer (4)

The weather this morning is about the same as yesterday. Mornings feel very cool, almost chilly. Afternoons are hot but not as hot as the predictions have said. Nights are warm but it's a dry heat, so sleeping is okay. A big fan up in the loft keeps the air moving so we're comfortable.

Oh, and by the way it's Bastille Day — le 14 juillet. People are saying that many of the traditional fireworks events have been cancelled because of the danger of starting "vegetation fires", as I've heard them called. It's very dry here. One of the three weather forecasting services we track says we can expect a high of 34 today, another says 35, and a third says 36 in degrees Celsius. So between 93 and 97 in degrees fahrenheit.


  1. Oh, yes, we had 4th of July fireworks cancelled all over around here one year when it was about 107°F, and we hadn't had rain in 6 weeks.

  2. Rooftops of the village! I love to see those red, high-pitched roofs so typically french. Bonne Fête Nationale!

  3. I love roof tops. There is a story that can only be told by a village roof tops. A room with a garden view is okay but a room with a view of roof tops is truly a delight for me..


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
