Well here today as expected snow we have in the south east of the UK as usual everything grinds to a halt. Love it if I can play in it not much fun if you have a 60 mile drive to work… Someone please tell me its true what my French neighbours tell me it never snows in Madiran gets pretty cold and you can see the snow in the mountains,that will be more than enough for me.

Never say never Bryan. Up the road here in the Gers we had snow on May 4th this year - but we had been swimming in our pool the previous week. It was strange weather but the whole world’s weather has become odd…my neighbour says even his grandfather had never seen snow in May. If you look at Meteo France site it shows you the historical min and max for thecurrent month - they can vary by over 40 degrees!!
