Last night, a thunder and lightning storm cracked and rumbled throughout most of the night, knocking out power to the house in the wee hours of the morning. The rain came down with the intensity of machine-gun fire, scaring our sleeping dog out of his crate and into our bedroom.
According to the neighbors, ce ne pas normal for this time of year.
We woke to un matin brumeux tranquille, reset the circuit breaker, and fired up the espresso maker for a hot café au lait. After un petit déjeuner, my son and I ventured out to la boulangerie for our daily bread, stopping to snap a few photos of the wet and foggy countryside along the way.
While the warm days and blue skies of l'été may be over, these cooler days of le vent, la pluie et le brouillard are no less belle.
