As seems to be common around the world the weather here at the moment is not as would be usually expected. We have had ten days of glorious sunshine since we arrived, but November which is normally pretty wet was largely dry, and has continued on through December. This is causing a severe water shortage, which has a knock on effect on electricity supply.
Yesterday we lost the sun and had quite a wet night with a gale. Today we still have the gale but the rain has stopped.
