The town of Irancy is nestled in a low spot among the hills. The church tower is just visible in the center of this photo.
We had a good rain last night. I'll measure the amount in the rain gauge when it gets light outside (Update: I did. Fifteen millimeters). I built a fire in the stove yesterday morning and it kept us cozy all day. The new doors to the deck really make a difference; the old doors were single-paned and didn't seal well when closed. Of course, it's not particularly cold outside, but I'm still encouraged.
