The aerial photos of Preuilly on Google Earth/Maps have just been updated. The new photos give a date of 19th August 2010 which may actually be correct, as that date was a Thursday and the photo shows the Thursday market.

Talking of dry years: we had a thunderstorm last night. Lots of thunder, some lightning, and not enough rain to make the dust wet. In fact I was standing outside the whole time it was "raining" and didn't actually get damp - which is disappointing, as Meteo France had issued a weather warning for us, and had predicted it was going to rain all afternoon evening and night.
I am sure their inaccurcy isn't wilful, but some days it sure does feel like it.
