Locust Bites Weasel

France faces drought, locusts reports WaTimes.

On top of a severe drought, France is fighting a plague of hundreds of thousands of locusts. The locusts are devouring everything from crops to window-box flowers.

We return to the Southern Med tomorrow, and in the interests of full disclosure I should mention that we left in our courtyard a locust name of Jimminy. We've been away 5 weeks, and maybe he got hungry.

We're sooo sorreee...
