Still lying north of Potenza. The artillery are moving forward today, so perhaps we will go tomorrow. We are getting very tired of lying around. There is absolutely no shade on this plain. The most amazing electrical storm I have ever seen tonight. The whole sky was constantly lit up for practically the entire night. Very heavy rain, we got drenched.
