The Year 2003 had a ‚century summer‘ with weeks above 86°F. Looks like it was a short century, as this years summer is even worse with many trees loosing their leafs. Whole sidewalks are covered with them. Since weeks I am standing every evening in the garden watering ferns and some trees. Maybe this will come to an end soon, as more and more communes are forbidding watering and car washing as the municipal reservoirs are getting low. 

A thundering evening

I love thunderstorms. The sound, the feel of strong winds and the unbelievable power of lightning strikes astonish me every time since childhood. After weeks of hot weather, a cold front finally arrived and ended the sweaty period. I checked the forecast, fetched my camera bag and took the car to a small hill a few miles away.
