For the first time since we fist visited the island back in 1986, we saw people going out during the day in coats and scarves..... ! Scarves are unheard of and as for a coat, a light one, but only when it rains! One of the Canary islands, Las Palmas even had snow this year! But whilst we have been cold, overcast and windy, we have had barely a few drops of rain since March 2011. A serious problem for the island farmers and if no rain comes this month, there is every chance the potatoe crop will be lost. Domestic water is in plenty of supply thanks to the desalination plant on the island, but water is expensive so not something we waste a drop off.
Thank you for stopping and I hope the sun is shinning in your part of the world.
