A familiar view

Once again, I'm running out of fresh fotos. I've not posted this one before, but the view should be familiar to regular readers. I'm standing at the edge of our hamlet looking westward over the vineyards. I'd say that the majority of our walks with Tasha start at this point.

No snow in our forecast, but we are expecting more rain.

I'm reading the news about the snow in Buffalo, NY. Some areas near the city got hammered with over five feet (about 1.5m) of snow. Can you imagine? I don't think I've ever seen that much snow from a single storm, and I grew up in Upstate New York.

This morning's low at our house here in France has dipped down to less than five degrees Celsius. That's pretty chilly for us. I usually wear long-johns on our walks when the temperature goes below five. But it's not my turn this morning. Tomorrow, of course, is another story.


  1. I remember having more than 4 feet in one storm around 20 years ago, and that was incredible. This is astounding. (And I’m so glad I’m not there.) The temperature here was a brutal 12˚C 8 this morning! It’s only up to 14 now. Time to get out the scarves and gloves.

  2. That was Buffalo I was referring to in that storm around 20 years ago.

  3. Canada knows what to do with snow, they send it across Lake Ontario to Buffalo. But this was just too much, guys!

  4. We used to get that kind of snow in Derbyshire, regularly, but haven't for quite a few years. The last time was the year I decided to retire. The struggle of getting to work in it was becoming too much and I'd had enough.

  5. mitch, we didn't even get up to 12ºC yesterday. Stayed around 10.

    bettyann, I'm sure Canada gets more than its fair share of snow! :)

    jean, I can understand that!

  6. My relations back east told my horrific snow stories this weekend. It is hard to imagine here in AZ.


Tell me what you think!
