Snow !


Of the 37 French Departments which issued a snow ‘alert’ today, the Var was probably in least danger! The snow petered out less than 100 metres  below the house, around 250 metres ASL, and the village merely enjoyed another  cold winter drizzle.

However, our olives (these are the Brun on the Feu Bas) looked good for a few hours this morning, drooping with white flakes.

The temperature dropped at dusk and the remaining snow has frozen solid tonight, so we’ll need to drive carefully on the steep corners below the house tomorrow… or find ourselves among the olives!
