So you lot have had snow? We've just had more than a bit of wind - as in Mistral !!
It started late afternoon yesterday, but nothing special for around here. Bad during the night, really bad first thing.
Juice went off at 07.30. I went off to get bread etc an hour later. Massive tree down within 200m of where we live, power lines wiped out. 15km detour to get the essentials: juice off there too. Went down during the day to see how things were going with the clearup, Gendarmerie down there in force. Asked whether they thought that we'd be back on again today, to which the reply was the immortal "Normallement .............. oui".
If I say that my confidence in his reply was somewhat less than 10%, you'll get my drift.
Cooked something rough & ready on the Camping Gaz stove and fully expected no juice until midday tomorrow at least, when ............... hey presto, back on again at 20.30.
In all this, I have no criticism of ErDF: there are lines down all over the shop down here. They must have been working under arc lights to get us back up earlier this evening. Well done to them.
