Raining in Valencia - The Gota Fria

It's that time of year again when the deluge takes everyone by surprise, schools are closed, roads cut off, garages flooded and images of floating cars festoon our TV screens. The Gota Fria has arrived.

So for the uninitiated what is the Gota Fria? It is a monsoon like breaking of the summer that results in things like the below video. Enjoy the video and remember this usually lasts a few days to a maximum of a week. Be prepared for it but also remember that Valencia in general has around 300 days of sunshine per year to enjoy.
