Here & There, maybe Everywhere

This was a temporary entry, instead of what would have been up. I am writing mainly for my friends to point out that there may be some downtime - me out of touch with the world (as opposed to out of touch with reality - situation normal ☺).

The France2 weathergirl explains all:

Image taken from internet broadcast of weather bulletin, you can watch the weather reports here.

Some images from the evening forecast:

Serious severe weather alerts - panic now! [Hurricane Xynthia]
(at least we aren't in Bordeaux!)

Only 120kph winds? That's not so bad... is it? [Hurricane Xynthia]
(for us, it looks like it'll be at its worst tomorrow morning)

Bye-bye, nice smile, see you tomorrow... if you're still here. [Hurricane Xynthia]
(a nice smile, after telling us to take care for the impending end-of-the-world...)

Now that does look like it's going to be a mess....!

I was starting to wonder if the storm had come in further south... but, nope. Here it is... 
 
It is very bizarre. Just like last time (two days ago!). It was drizzling, breezy, but no big deal. Then suddenly CLICK! it was as if a "Storm" switch was turned on. No prelude, no warm up, we go from breeze to shutter-wobbling winds in a heartbeat. 
Still have power and connectivity (duh, else you'd not be reading this!), but we've only just begun. I just hope there isn't a little red "Boost" button beside that switch. 
 
Later...
