The rainy week was welcome because we needed it, but I have to say that it was a pleasure to wake up today to find clear skies and gentle temperatures. As usual, the villagers were out in droves after days of staying inside huddled next to their fires.
For the first time in ages, the Hers was actually running high, although the Blau is still looking decidedly shallow. I don’t know if having pretty much solid rain for most of the first two weeks of November was enough to affect the drought or not though. It’s a lot easier to go into drought conditions than it is to get out of them.
Sad news to report: Telé Chalabre is off the air. I haven’t really been able to get the details, and only know that there was a problem with the transmission tower. I think it has to do with it being sort of “unofficial,” but I’m not totally certain. One of the rumors I heard was that Orange complained that it was interfering with the cell tower, but I don’t know if that is fact or not. Besides no longer seeing the revolving slideshow of important events, times, etc. of village happenings, this also seems to have impacted the TNT signal that people in the village were getting. I hope that a solution is found soon for everyone’s sake.
Ciao for now.
