When storm clouds gather over the French Riviera you can be assured of something quite spectacular. I have known the storms to last for days. The best thing to do is find a favourite restaurant and let nature take its course, enjoy good French food while lightning hurls bright flashes through the darkness and thunder rumbles around the mountains. Equal measures of terror and awe.
The above image was taken in Nice just hours before the storm broke.
