how cold was it ?


It was so cold* in January of last year, that the moisture on the window of the train to Amboise froze over.  So far this year, it's been a pretty mild winter here... no ice, no snow.  Zut.


*With respects to Johnny Carson, whom some of you may remember.

  1. I have this little fear in my head that we're going to pay for this warm winter...

    1. Yes when the bugs are out in force, we'll regret it.

  2. Goodness, what an interesting photo. I tried to work out what it was before looking at the caption but had no idea. It looks a bit like plaster.
    Do you have a photo of the porcupine you mentioned at Chaumont?

    1. It was interesting to watch it form as it "grew" from one side of the window to the other.

  3. It looks like you'll be seeing spring, summer, and autumn again before you see winter. ;))

    1. Not exactly a heat wave, but it is a few degrees above average. Which is to say above freezing.
