To BBQ or not to BBQ

The month of March up in the Andalucian mountains can be a bit unpredictable. One day it is warm with temperatures over 40 on a sun trapped patio, the next day biting wind or rain...



One afternoon last week we had a BBQ - realy brought back the true taste of summer, the Spanish flies appeared in their millions as usual and the whole day was an enjoyable experience, especialy the BBQ'd pork. Next day......60mph winds, knocked the sat dish out and the temperature dropped rapidly, so much so the fire went on that night.



So you just dont know what the weather is going to do, 930m above sea level makes for a variety of conditions, most of which at times can be unexpected although not unpredictable. See the grey clouds coming and notice a drop in temperature then get the rain coats out and a few logs in for the fire. 9 times out of 10 nothing will happen or a storm may just miss you but if its destined for your patch...at least the garden gets watered.

I bet it feels like back home! Your new website is really good and I have seen some Spanish websites. The language section is much better than usual. I hope it all goes well. If you want me to put a link in our Tapas website, please let me know.
