severe weather warning in St Jean de Luz

Tonight people in St Jean de Luz and the surrounding area were contacted by the authorities to warn them of an impending storm. We are to baton down the hatches, unplug all electrical items, disconnect internet and not to go outside once it starts. As I look outside at dusk there are black clouds rolling in from the Atlantic and beginning to twist themselves around the Pyreneean foothills. We shall see what the night ahead has in store. We either have a fantastic storm coming in or somebody somewhere is about to undertake a mammoth swindle. The shipping forecast will be worth listening to tonight, but then again, isn't it always...
