Rain in July

Okay, we must be crazy to be blogging about the weather!

Only in a place with a divine climate like Sicily's would a touch of rain in late July actually be news. Realistically, considering the sinking state of Sicily's economy, perhaps we should be grateful that the sunshine is free!

If nothing else, the few drops that have fallen across the island today - in Summer it's usually only the Nebrodi-Etna region that gets any rain at all - serve to clean the air a bit. In much of Sicily there has been no rain since early June, and most years there is virtually no rain at all during July and August.
