Updated- Rain Coming Monday morning?: All the major weather services agree for the Gib to Almeria area there is a good chance of rain showers from Monday 2am till possibly as late as 2am Tuesday. Accuweather says there’s a 50-60% chance of thunderstorms at 9am, 3pm and 9pm, none of the others I checked mentioned thunderstorms. Be alert to possible flash flooding. If you suspect lightning, and don’t use protective UPS power supplies for your electronics, unplug your computers and router. Circuit breakers and typical surge protecting power strips, while good at protecting your appliances, are insufficient to protect the more delicate computer gear from a lightning generated power surge. -Ed.

Dog Owners: This is a warning to dog owners who open their door in the early morning and let your dogs wonder of in the campo. I live in Carraspite Sayalonga,and this morning I was woken up at around seven o’clock by an noise sounding like crying whining and splashing, turning on my lights found a large black Labrador type dog in the pool half under the cover almost drowned, When I went outside to see if I could get it out there was a large German Shepherd type dog also on my terrace,obviously they were together but I wasn’t sure if it was going to be aggressive if I went to the other dog but it stayed to the side . I couldn’t let the other dog drown so I managed to get it out of the pool with a lot of struggling,and they both ran off .
If you own a dog and can’t be bothered to take it out for a walk then I suggest you are not a fit person to own one and should get rid of them.
