Extreme weather warnings / Re: Hot!
« Last post by GeordieBorn on Yesterday at 10:57:16 PM »
Well the weather may have broken but there a number of fires in the hills around Sulmona. They appear to have started around 5pm by which time it was quite overcast and cooling down. There is a moderate breeze which is fanning and spreading the flames causing multiple breakouts.

Lets hope they get it under control and no one is impacted by it. It would not get far North as there was quite a bit rain in parts for an hour or so this afternoon.

Oh dear.

We were threatened with some rain today but it didn't materialise. Much cooler (~ 27C) with tomorrow being cooler still I think.

I wonder if we might have already finished with the keep-the-sun-out routine of closing shutters / windows / curtains to try to moderate temperatures...

Not to be argumentative or too-far off topic but there is supporting hard data suggesting the Italian judicial system (at least on the civil side) compared with other developed countries, can accurately be described as "beyond a joke, a national scandal & an embarrassment".

Seven months into the presidency of my country's Mango Mussolini (aka Cheeto Benito, aka Donald Drumpf, etc) I have come to know abbastanza and am quite schooled re jokes, national scandals and embarrassment.

Thanks for your replies, I've already contacted the insurers and I'll see how far (or not ) I get this week with regard to changing ownership..I'll keep you informed .

With all the stresses in life and the nightmare situations in Spain ( I won't even start talking about those scumbags) what a nice thing to read, thanks Levi, the first part of that will now become my whatsapp status :)

I agree with Relaxed (sorry Rustychain), a neighbours son has gone to the UK to work for a year to gain experience of the language, the last conversation I had with him he said "I thought the Italian systems were a nightmare, I have now learned that it is just normal!".
