Summer.. with water!

Water is often on the wane by July in the Sierra de Guadarrama, and in Central Spain generally. It’s weird to read of water restrictions in Ireland this Summer, while the liquid element continues to be relatively abundant locally..

The video is from the middle of June, when we visited the Cascada del Chorro, not far from La Granja in the province of Segovia, on a very wintry day barely a week before the Summer solstice. But even now, close to the end of July, we are still blessed by generously gushing streams and springs. Not to mention relatively cool temperatures. While Sweden burns. And Vietnam drowns. And Japan simultaneously roasts and drowns. And Greece burns. Und so weiter.. weird weather indeed.

Climate change, anyone? Some expert views: Why-is-Europe-going-through-a-heatwave? ‘Europe’ here, i guess, referring more to Northern Europe.. we’re cool in Spain! ..though things are not cool at all in Greece?

Welcome to extreme weather.

About coldspringdays

Éireannach is ea mé, i mo chonaí insan Spáinn. Rugadh mé i lár na tuaithe, ar feadh blianta bhí mé ag teitheadh uaithi, i bhfad as an tuath, ach sa deireadh d'fhill mé, ar ais go dtí an tuath.. An Irishman am I, settled in Spain. Born was I in the middle of the country, for years I ran from it, far from the country, but in the end I returned, back to the country..
