The weather is turning

There is a spate of bad weather across the world, so what we are getting isn't so bad I guess. The summer has been a bit of a non starter and so as we await an "Indian Summer" we are disappointed. The storms have killed five people across the Manche in England.

The French call "The English Channel" La Manche, which is also the name of the Department that is home to Cherbourg a busy ferry port. Makes me think why should the English call it the English channel anyway?
Here is a picture taken this summer at about 6.30am at Cherbourg.

Indian Summer.

Manche also means sleeve.
