More Rain in Spain. Bumper harvest to follow

And it just keeps on coming. Expect a bumper harvest of olives, oranges and all of the other stuff you get from Spain because the last month or so has been virtually every day and apparently in the vast majority of places the "good" rain that comes down not in a torrential torrent but at a more leisurely pace making sure that it soaks in rather than running off.
Christmas mandarins should be really juicy this year.

In Valencia we are consdiered to have had a real Gota Fria this year, this is a type of monsoon that engulfs this specific area of the Med around October time. Anyway if you want to know what it can look like check out these images from the Riada of 1957 in Valencia. (Turn the music off though)
