This is why I don´t go out if it rains in Positano:
except with a shovel to clear the single drain where all of the neighbourhood´s rain water is channelled, of the mud and debris.
But when the Fornillo storm water drains alongside our house look like this:
you can hardly blame it for not coping.
I only hope that the gardens below don´t give way into a repetition of the tragedy at Atrani.
