The news

We were scared stiff…

 

…..very, very scared on June 27th at Les Landes.

There was a violent thunderstorm during the night and the thunder fell on the transformer of the property and also on a pine tree in the forest…

….and two days later, the fire which smouldered started in the peat at the foot of the tree which had received the lightning discharge and started spreading around. Fortunately, the firemen interfered very quickly and managed to stop the fire.

We were more frightened than hurt!!
