well after last night's storm whic the news says managed to rack up 45 to 50 deaths & loads of seriously injured, I thought i'd go & have a look at the damage. I couldn't find any so played silly bu**ers "storm chasing" with the few residual local storms passing through. I paid the price & managed to get caught in a butt clenchingly violent hail storm which had me running for cover & seeking sanctuary in a local church.

Didn't get pics of the hail cos didn't dare take me lid off...

here's some piccies

swollen river (sounds like a japanese alcoholic that...)



claggy dirt track




very "french" road




out towards Chablis




stopped to put me waterploof trousers on here (& changed camera cos my one's fubar'd)




stepped off the bike here & nearly fell in a bog...


literally!




storm chasing










it was this one that evenyually got me!






sanctuary


didn't want to go home but it was getting late, & cold. 'Bout 100 odd k in all, thouroughly enjoyed my self but pissed off the camera's packed up cos It's managed to erase all the pics I took of the family in the UK.

Rode into a fabulous storm back last year going into LeMans with Mel J and it was fantastic stuff, scary and wet all at once but could see the clouds for a while prior to. Great pics Moon, all good fun:thumbright:

we had it easy compared to the west coast, they had it seriously bad & coupled with spring tides (or nearly) so the coastal defences were breached. The spring tides (highest tides of the quarter) are tonight & it won't be much fun on the "ile de Ré" tonight...
