The forecast was for rain today in Venice, and sure enough a powerful wind and rain storm hit the Lido, knocking down tents and vendor stands and flooding stores on the main beach drag.

In the press room, where I was trying to post my Somewhere review, rain poured through the ceiling into buckets, causing the press office to it shut down for several hours, sending journos out into the elements in search of a wi-fi connection. I returned via bus to my hotel and posted from there.

Luckily, the deluge didn't last long, moving on toward Venice. More pictures and storm video below.

Here's the video I shot out the window of the third floor press room.
