Winter’s Here….!

…And no doubt about it!

So the snow hasn’t stopped, down valley, too we’ve got heaps of the stuff! We had some snow, then rain, then snow, and the snow that’s falling now is looking deep and permanent for the season, and it is ‘nice quality’ Who knows we might manage to get out on the slopes the weekend, we need to check out what’s open where!

Ooo! I feel a lovely crisp day, on the slopes with piping hot French Onion Soup and crusty bread on the way!

Cold Morning in Chamonix

We both had to go into Chamonix this morning, and guess what! Yep, there was loads of snow, in fact tons of the stuff! The road to Argentiere was blocked off, people were out digging the drives, winter has most definitely arrived in these parts. Some of the cars lost there angles, and looked really smooth, with the windscreen wipers poking out.

It was very early, and the traffic was moving a tad slow… It seems like the winter ski season, will not be long underway now!
