By now you know the south of France was hit by flooding in many towns and villages. In the center of historic Uzes, the biggest problem now is from water that leaked in through walls, windows and roofs. Villages below Uzes are still suffering from flood damage.

The event around Uzes was recorded by some amazing photography.  Several photos were given to me by friends who asked me to share them with you.

 Remember the poultry farm outside Uzes? The one where Geoffrey and I picked up our Thanksgiving turkey last year? 

Here it is then….

Here it is now …

The birds “flew the coop.” Literally.

Wine time at the Duchey

Wine time. Sea shells from South Carolina remind me of storms  from the past.

  1. The pictures really capture how awful the storm was. The photos of the sky – and the terrace – are fabulous. One more thing to consider in my search – hilltop village, high floor.

    • Yep. Who would have thought! Although the history in the 2000s in this part of France for flooding has been pretty bad. I still think you should look at Vers-du-Gard… or Castillon du Gard.
