I’m back at Ponte a Serraglio for a while. The stormy weather continues. Today was a mixture of rain, hail, thunder, bits of blue sky…and repeat.
I like the leaves on the footpath.
I have walked past this many times, but not really noticed how lovely it is.
I don’t mind a bit of wet weather and the occasional storm, but this weather has been frightening. I am surprised there is not more damage after these ferocious storms.
Debra, I’m sorry the storms are frightening. I hope they continue not to do much damage. Still, it is so very beautiful there!
I was at our mountain house for the worst of the storms. The wind was ferocious and the rain was horizontal. I hope we have seen the last of them for a while.
That would be very scary, up on the mountainside!
Hi Debra, The ‘house of a friend’ – is that the house with the lift, from down below? (I’ve dreamed of having a house with a lift like that!, though Tracy not so much).
I’ve never ventured past this point, but totally intrigued!
Oops, that wasn’t the screen shot I was meaning to insert, and now… no way to edit my face out! Here’s the house pic that I’d meant to insert. Sorry ’bout that!
The pink house is not the one with the lift. I know that one and I am not sure that the lift still works. I have always wanted to ride in it.
Love the picture of I’ll Serchio from the bridge at Ponte aSerraglio.
As kids I remember getting haircuts at the barber shop. Can’t remember is it’s still there. Was there last in 2018
Sadly the barber is no longer there. The space is now taken by a very good fruit and vegetable shop.
Having the same type of weather in the north of Spain. And it does not look as if it is going to improve for the next few days.
Bad weather is forecast here for a while too. It is expected at this time of the year, but it is a bit miserable.
The rain just keeps falling. It is worse further north where there is flooding.
I sign at seeing the first pic. 🙂
That is taken from my balcony. The view is stunning, even in bad weather.
Glad you have reported no serious damage in the area. Stay safe.
I haven’t heard of any damage. I hope that continues.
Thanks for the always beautiful photos. Even though the weather is gloomy and a bit scary, still part of life and well documented by your camera and eye. I am surprised to see how full and and a bit ‘angry’ the river looks as it’s still before the snows fly. Perhaps higher mountain snowfall plus the stormy weather? Always appreciate your photos and descriptions.
I like to share this beautiful part of the world. The river has calmed down a little now, but the water is still high. During storms the river turns into a raging torrent after the heavy rain and melting snow from higher up.
The weather has been rather crazy throughout Europe. A few nights ago we had a terrible storm in San Sebastian. Howling wind, high seas… the works… The climate change is here.
We had a couple of terrifying storms while I was still at Casa Debbio. I closed all the wooden shutters and sat it the dark until they passed, all the time wondering what I would find when I opened them. Fortunately there was little damage.
