Water, water everywhere. The current break in the rain is allowing the ground to drain a little. Not much more can soak in, so it has to run off. All the usual low spots are filled with water, either standing or running down to meet other streams on their way to the river. In our case, it's the Cher which, in turn, joins the Loire at Tours to make its way to the ocean.

A drop of water hanging on to the grille of a fence.

With all the flooding happening around France, the Cher is not posing a serious danger. Oh, it's overflowed in the usual spots, those flood plains and other low lands where the river normally spills over. But there are no reported threats of unusual high water or flooding of urbanized areas.

Meanwhile, we get a respite and a chance to dry out a little. This morning there is a thick fog outside and the temperature has dropped to about 2ºC (36ºF). That's the coldest it's been in a while.


  1. I love this shot. Glad you’re not experiencing the flooding. 3C?!? Oh my god!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
