Global warming?

June is turning into a beast of a month. After the floods in Hull, forest fires are raging worryingly close to the house in Greece. Some 10% of Pelion's beautiful woodland has been lost. Planes and helicopters are fighting the fires. We can do nothing but wait and hope.

UPDATE
News from my friends. The temperature has dropped, giving some respite. Our village and surrounding area is untouched. A small fire caused by motorised tricycle carrying building materials toppling over was promptly dealt with. The anxiety is relieved but there is grief at the beautiful countryside that has been lost until nature starts to regenerate. Report here.
