Amber alert

John left us this morning and is heading up to the Alps in his 'pegul car' (a 1970s Alfa Spider) to watch le Tour and to get in some good cycling action himself! It was 30 degrees when he left. It has reached nearly 34 degrees in the shade this afternoon so we have spent most of the day indoors. However, this evening and into the early hours of the morning we are on amber alert due to some severe storm activity which is developing not only in our area but also across much of France. Gusts of up to 100kph are possible, although the air is deadly still at the moment. Let's hope my heavily laden tomato plants are able to withstand the buffeting!
