April 25, 2011: Grenoble - Easter Monday; At Last - The Rain

Today was a quiet holiday - whereas in Canada it's Good Friday that's the holiday, here it is Easter Monday. We thought most stores would be closed, but it turned out that Monoprix was open, as were the cafes in the area.

It was sunny and summery most of the day, but at last we had the rain in the afternoon that we'd been waiting for all weekend: loud thunder (does it reverberate more with all the mountains surrounding the city?) rain and hail - all while still shining brightly directly overhead. Very dramatic, and I'm glad we were indoors.

The view across the street from our apartment during the storm - bright light on the building against dark clouds.

Yet another record of the wine we've been drinking
