Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

At a time when most Aussies (well most that we know) are shivering in the middle of the drizzly Australian winter I started thinking about our first experience of snow in Argenton sur Creuse.

Having never lived anywhere it snowed before we were very excited at even our first little flurries of snow.

A sprinkling of snow makes everything so pretty, and when it’s all so lovely already, the town became just picture perfect!

I’m sure all the locals thought we were quite mad going for walks every time it snowed taking photos. Even when it was -8C!

The skies cleared and the snow melted, slowly sliding off the steep roofs.

And we couldn’t wait for the next bout.

    It has snowed a couple of times when I have been in Bagni di Lucca and I just love it. The olcals hate the snow and don’t cope at all well with it. They also think I am nuts when I go wandering about in it, but I come from Brisbane where we are absolutely never going to have snow and it is a complete novelty.

    Had you taken cold weather clothes with you? – or did you buy ’em locally?

      We had packed for all seasons (layers are always good) but I bought a warm hat (très français) and non-slip boots locally – the snow can get icy and rather dangerous without some decent traction!
