Nice job Rusted, we have the same southerly wind here too, just cloud to go with it blowing off the mountains of Brittany.

Re: 4-3-20 Observations

That's sad. Corona is a good beer. People should think Corona=Sun in this case!! Sol beer is good too just a bit milder of flavor than Corona. I know, both Sol and Corona are nice.
