Red skies...

This is the time of year when the weather becomes unpredictable. Yesterday we had quite a thunderstorm with pouring rain for about fifteen minutes (and, alas, a bit leaked through part of our roof... seems we're destined to have roof problems in Cyprus!) but within half an hour the sun had come out, and it's been shining all day today. The nights are getting chilly - last night we went out to eat at one of the sea-front restaurants, and all took jackets of some sort.

So there's a mixture of 'shepherds' delight' and 'shepherds' warning' in our skies at present. Each morning I see something like this from the balcony outside our bedroom as the sun rises:

.. and a couple of days ago the sky really did look like this in the early evening. No clouds, but a very red glow everywhere, possibly as a result of sand blowing over from Egypt:
