This is Semana Santa. While there is the Easter side of it, for most here the important ingredient is that it is a week to celebrate summer before summer goes away. Everyone and I do mean everyone goes to the beach.
That said, what happened today? It the last two hours we got 28mm of rain including a bit of hail. That is not on the agenda for summer. Further, there has been no more that week-long stretches of summer weather all summer.
