Abruzzo in pictures / Our Little owl

So when we helped him to escape the cats ...we checked him over , popped him in a basket and left him on our upstairs balcony overnight. At 5am the following morning he called out to his mum, she flew down , fed him and eventually they flew off together . This was him in his overnight basket.

I should just say we were wearing gloves so as not to leave that awful human smell on it :)

You can add Ď eventi atmosferici Ď to your car insurance. I thought it was daft till I saw the damage hail stones can do.

As Iíve said before, we spotted loads of camouflage cars when we first arrived and it took me a few hail storm events before I realised what caused there this! Last yearís hail in July threw down hail the size of the old sherbet saucers you got when we were little, worse still they were exactly the same shape! Razor sharp, they took entire stalks off the plants in one fell swoop. Went straight through any plastic lying around the house, so you can imagine what it could do to your car Ė hence ours stays under cover.

Hail really is the farmers enemy, it devastates crops. I remember one year when a neighbour lost his entire tomato crop after a hail storm and it didnít do the grapes much good either!

As you were - I have just been informed that this was a Gradine storm? Thats a lot of Gradine .
Think yourself lucky your car was not outside! The hail last July wreaked havoc in our garden last year. Fortunately we had none here yesterday, although Lui is right and the forecast is for more thunder storms.
