Hey baby it's cold outside

We are now up to about 10 inches deep and it's still snowing.

My daffodils are now officially dead.

The clouds are lifting off the alberes to reveal a covering off snow

I've just spent two days in Argeles with my camping car , and thinking I must go and look round the Albere sometime as it looks so green and lush. I'll wait a bit before I go. It will however look very pretty.

The Alberes behind Intermarche, Argeles are still very misty but just showing the snow. Is this late in the year Jenny for Les Angles to have so much snow?

We often have late snow. I can't remember if it was last year or the year before that we had about three feet of the wretched stuff approx 14th May. Early May usually brings about a foot but it goes quite quickly. This next week will hold this snow as the temps are forcast to be low.

Good greif, the snowplough has just been down the lane and piled a great big load of snow across our gate. Is it double time for Saturday afternoon? He never came this morning.Hmmmm

OK, I've no officially had enough.

It's still snowing. Not just the odd flake but heavy stuff that is getting deeper by the minute. The visibility is vile and really not a day to come up to the mountains for lunch.

Where is Sav with the good weather when you need him?
