polop de la marina, alicante
It took a long time to come, but today we saw 30º for the first time this year. Not that it hasn't been warm; just not hot. The drought is biting hard with the manantial (spring) by the bridge already dry. It hasn't rained properly in Polop since December and the effect on the fruit trees can be seen clearly. The dust is blown up by even the slightest of breezes. To the south of the province, much of the Jijona almond crop is lost. Expect expensive xmas turrón.
