Sunny Cyprus?????

Sunny Cyprus has not been so sunny at the moment! After what looked like a change in the weather we've had some huge storms and so much rain.

We were lucky with the weather for the week that Di and the boys were out, it was nice every day and we spent time at the beach and by the pool. Far too cold for most normal people to go in the pool, Tomas got over the cold and enjoyed it, James not so much! In a moment of madness I did throw myself in but not for long!

The day after they left it started raining and boy did it rain! We had some drama on Thursday when my Mum came upstairs and told me there was water coming through her ceiling. It turned out the the drain holes on the balcony of the apartment between us and hers were blocked and the balcony flooded into the apartment! All is ok now though as we called the developer and they came and swept all the water out.

We then had a day of sun -handy as I managed to get 3 loads of washing done - if the sun's not out it takes days for the washing to dry! Then on Saturday night we had the biggest storm I've ever heard. Continuous thunder and lightning for a couple of hours, the lightning lit up our bedroom like someone turning on a light and the thunder sounded like the building was collapsing around us.

Luckily the drain problem downstairs was sorted so no more problems here but the roads were flooded. I didn't manage to get a picture of the veiw from our balcony but Kelly took this from her house.

However, the sun is now shining brightly and there is not a cloud in the sky. The weather forecast for the week is good and I'm hoping it stays nice for the weekend as we have our next visitors :)

    I just discovered your blog through AngloInfo and I started reading from the beginning. So far I kind of laughed with this blog entry as it is very typical for foreigners to think that Cyprus is always sunny. (It mostly is) We do get some very wet months and people seem to forget to mention that to people moving into the country.
