Tin Hat Time...
My ‘vintage updates’ seem to be becoming more of a ‘hail-watch’ than anything. Anyway, here’s the mid-July ‘hail-report’:

Yesterday evening there was a tremendous storm following a hot day of about 30°C. It seems from reports in so-far, that the Côte d’Or pretty-much escaped with a mere 50 millimetres of rain in about 12 hours.

Less lucky as you can see from the linked photo, was Bligny-sur-Ouche, which I think would be classified as Hautes Côtes de Beaune – if they still have some grapes!

Now those things have really got to hurt. Never-mind their grapes, do you think any of their cows survived?

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Bill, thanks for the heads up. The phrase dodging bullets comes to mind…

    Was that near Bligny-sur-Ouch?
