Storm Clouds over Barcelona

Storm over Barceloneta


Not the sky you want to see at 16.30 on a Tuesday, especially for those people who are in Barcelona on holiday.

The lifeguards told everyone to get out of the water (they announced it in Spanish first, then in several other languages before English as understandably us English are the most dispensable), but of course some people ignore the warnings. Do they not watch the news about the lightening strike yesterday on Venice Beach which killed one person and injured many others?

A typical lightning bolt measures 300 million volts which is plenty enough to kill. You can become a target if you are in the sea in the same way you can be in the middle of a field, as the lightening will always take the path of least resistance.  

I’m home now waiting for the fireworks, the symphony and the deluge to begin.
