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.

Hello Rosa.. I have never seen anything like that except for Singapore in the Monsoon season. As you say No wonder you don't go out.

Take care Anne

The weather you have had in southern italy has missed us this time, what a lot of rain fell in such a short time. The tragedy in Atrani is terrible.
