Exciting times over on the Adriatic this week, when a violent storm hit the Venice strip, taking out trees, cars and mobile homes.
Marina di Venezia lost two tents, and the live unit on Union Lido is looking somewhat wonky, to say the least.
Site staff, couriers and maintenance have been working round the clock to fix the damage and clear up the mess, while Alison mans the phones in the office in a bid to rehouse the homeless and send imminent arrivals elsewhere.
Just what we all need in the middle of August!
Area Supervisor Gail Fox had to eat her words following an earlier comment about being glad to see a bit of storm coming in to take the edge off the heat. Careful what you wish for there!
