* Rainstorms in Marbella

Wow, what a night last night! It seemed we were up all night with all the thunder and lightning.

It was lightly raining yesterday morning, but no one I know was expecting the heavy rainfall we had last night and early this morning. The streets are all flooded, but not so badly that the traffic is affected. It´s just wet, wet, wet.

The cooler temperatures are welcomed by most. I just passed one of those weather readers on the road and it read 18 degrees celsius. Didn´t feel like it though.

The good news, for some of us, is that the forecast for this weekend is for partly sunny skies and no more rain storms on the front.

We were really looking forward to attend the Luna Mora Festival in Guaro this evening, however we´ll have to see what the weather is up to by sundown. A shame, really, if it rains. All 20,000 candles will be blown out! Click here to read more...

Don´t forget the power of the BUZZ! Please tell your friends and family about our newsletter or to follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Thank you... and see you soon.
