In my honest opinion, no. This is the heaviest rainfall we've had in one week in may for many, many years. April also saw the heaviest rainfall since the 1930's. It's quite demoralising, particularly after last year's awful summer. I've been here for 6 years and can't say that we've experienced 2 summers (or winters) the same.
Once the sun does come out w'll soon forget about this week.

If it's any consolation, the weather's rubbish in the UK too - when did we last spend a spring bank holiday with the heating on (!), listening to gales and rain lash the house? It's just not right :evil:

Is it still raining in the Cruese - we had a lovely day here in the UK yesterday but back to grey drizzle today.

Just returned yesterday after a week the Creuse. It rained some part of everyday, usually for a couple of hours in the mid/late afternoon, and it was heavy rain! However, it was still warm, and when the sun managed an appearance, it was extremely pleasant.
The River Creuse flowing through gorge at Anzeme, and under 'The Devil's Bridge', looked spectacular. Not the clear water as usual this time of year, but a brown, frothy torrent, about 2/3 meters higher than normal.
We went to the vide-grenier at Saint-Vaury on Sunday morning and the weather was fine, rained in the afternoon!
However, the wet weather did focus our attention on doing some interior renovation work, so that was a kind of bonus.

Steve.

What a beautiful photograph! If it's any consolation it has been chucking it down here in England as well. Our friend in the Creuse who uses our meadow says he hasn't been able to cut any hay yet; I wonder if it will be like last year when he did haymaking and harvesting at the same time? I'd never known that before.
