Our weather lived up to its name in earnest this past week. The opening days brought a trinkling of snow on the fields and muct heavier in the far away hills. And the second half of the week was semi-tropical with hot sun giving us all a glow of warmth and good cheer. But the dry weather caused some forest fores in the area. On Sunday nght the night skys were lit up in flaming red as mountain sides blazed. Our Fire brigade was out to control fires which threatened forests in some places. Thankfully due to their great efforts, no serious damage was reported.
Mothers Day was celebrated like never before, with brilliant sunshine to allow outdoor parties, some on the beach and an air of wellbeing all around. Baoichas le Dia.
