Our (brief) winter wonderland

When our friend Rosemary came to our house this morning to exercise with Jan, she travelled by dog sled. This afternoon, I’ve made a booking to have snow tires put on my car. And I think lunch will be late today, because Jan is so busy with her 8-foot-tall snowman.

Okay, I’m kidding.

But we did get a smattering of snow overnight, and some of it actually stuck. I think this is the first “measurable” snowfall since the winter of 2011-12. In any case, here are just a couple of photos — “snow-tos,” if you will — to provide the evidence.

I’ll begin with a photo showing the thin layer of snow on the village church’s roof and bell tower:

The view from our front door.

And here’s a look into the back yard of one of our neighbours:

Looking over a snow-sprinkled hedge of ivy.

I’m pretty certain this winter wonderland won’t last long. Already, in late morning as I write this, the snow on the road has melted away. And with the temperature this afternoon skyrocketing to 2 degrees Celsius (almost 36 degrees American), I think we can say goodbye to the white stuff, at least for now.

    At least it lasted longer than our “snow” in January of 1977. Hasn’t happened since..

    Here in SE UK we’ve had two brief bouts of similarly sparse snow since the beginning of the year. I guess we have to appreciate it while it lasts … which in our case has been a couple of hours!

    Just discovered your blog while searching all things Daglan. My husband is French and we are hoping to buy a second home in the area, an almost impossible feat during Covid times. However your blog has inspired me, sun and good food needed now more than ever.

      Welcome to Radio Free Daglan, and what I gleefully call the Greater Daglan Area (that is, most of France). Our immediate neighbours (English) just sold their home to a French couple, so I know that sales can be done. But yes, it’s tough with the travel restrictions. Best of luck!
