We moved further south for an improvement in the weather.
Of the 10 years here, this has been the coldest, wettest and gloomiyest winters and spring that we have so far experienced in France.
I don't mind cold but can't bear the rain and grey sky.
Please weather God let us have summer.|
Coldest, wettest and gloomiest.....that is about right, Mogs, and is also borne out by the bilan that Betty has posted.
It said March was "mausade" and I couldn't have described it better; also lack of sunshine and cold. Had heating on just about every evening and some mornings in March.
I know that people from both my walking clubs have lamented an unprecedented number of walks having to be cancelled. A group did go to the Arcachon for our spring weekend away and they told me that it rained the whole weekend.
Note to Richard: If you want to think that it was "normal" and that we are simply used to warm springs and can't accept a few wet days, I can assure you that in this instance you are completely wrong
