It shouldn't be like that, and even more annoyingly, according to Meteo France it hasn't beem like that. For every single day of the last 7 weeks, at some stage they have forecast rain. At first it was continually forecast for about two days time, but recently they have been forecasting it for the same day (and sometimes even that part of the day we are in).

The view out of our window at the same timeYou will notice the lightning, rain and hail in the photo, exactly like the official website says. What annoys us is that everyone else seems to be getting weather.
Normally I wouldn't be complaining, but it is only just May, and already we have run out of water at the potager because we have been watering by hand every second day.
I have some tomatoes to plant out, but should I? The longer this goes on, the more likely we are to get serious rain and hail.
I wrote the above last night at about 21.00hrs, just in case we did have some weather: the first thing that happens when we get lightning here is the telephone exchange cuts off the internet. Since I wrote this post it has started raining - good, steady rain. I hope it's enough to fill up our water tanks at the potager.
