Cheers Gang!!  Felt a little bit sad last night - Bonfire night.  The last time I saw fireworks prior to last night was during our holiday in Albufeira, the midnight displays that were done on Sunday evenings - Ah, memories!!
 
Good old North West of England today dry, cloudy start with brilliant sunshine as I was trying to drive home from work - still smell bonfires everywhere though!!  Never seen as many 3 piece suites going up in flames as I did last night - I'm surprised anyone has any furniture left!!  Heard a good one at work today - just as someone was heaving a sofa into the flames of a near by bonfire, a mobile phone that must have slid down the back started to ring!!  LOL

Went into town this morning. it's not too bad; there has been some minor damage where paving stones and drain covers were lifted by the force of water. I think that some shops were also flooded where water came in through their doorways. There has been also a lot of soil washed down various slopes and the council have been busy sweeping mud and stones off several roads.

All the water has gone now. With excellent timing I had in the letter box this morning a copy of the 'Pols' newsletter which describes the next stage of the civic improvement works due to start in January which include the building of new new drains and sewers in the lower part of town, to help relieve just this problem.

Further afield the railway to Lisbon was washed out north of Tunes and there have been floods in Messines and Silves mentioned on TV news.

We have been promised a break in the weather! Certainly This afternoon was bright and sunny.

 WE have seen fireworks on sunday evenings in late august early september. celebrating a local festival and the town anniversary but at no other times of the year other than NEW YEARS EVE.
These may be the best you will ever see as the 3 coast line from Villamoura to Albufeira becomes one huge firework display.

Fantastic displays on 25 April every year, and much celebrating. It's Freedom/Revolution Day and, coincidentally, my birthday!

The displays that we saw were apparently to celebrate a religious occasion.  They were done from Fishermans Beach on Sundays 3rd and 10th of September starting at midnight.  Truly spectacular!!
 
The weather here today isn't too bad, though we have had some heavy showers and high winds - no point trying to use an umbrella, Mary Poppins springs to mind!!

Sun beaming down from cloudless skies as I write. Been dry for several days now as well. But the wind is coming from the north-east so it is noticeably cold at night.
