On est Frileux

The past few days have sure been nice, and friends back in California are complaining about the 114ºF. temperatures last week near where we live there. Although that's exceptional, it does make us less whiny about schlepping in the firewood. And we also saw a vast honking V of birds heading south, too high to be really sure whether they were cranes, but they were wonderful.....
Next week the méteo predicts sub-freezing temperatures here, and rain (sleet?), so although 114 is a bit hot, if the French strike season permits, we'll head back to California in ten days.....back, we expect, for the giboulées de mai next year. Stay cozy, everyone.

Oh, don't say that! We're coming over soon and I was hoping for some late autumn sunshine. I had better pack the thermals!

Oh dear, Creusebear - a quick look at the weather forecast on the home page predicts freezing temperatures. Sounds like you'll need those thermals!

I laughed at Dave's post UNTIL I saw the forecast this morning. From warm days to freezing in such a short time! Wish I could go somewhere warmer now.

Noticed the chill in the air this morning. First time I felt cold taking the dogs out and the cats only went out for 10 mins. :(

There's definitely been a change . . . first lighting of the kitchen stove this morning! (Though OH is still in shorts :o) . . )

We are over next week for some peace and indoor camping, better take an extra sleeping bag- Still hopefully my orange juice will not freeze as it did the first year I was over and staying at Chambon-sur-Voueize camp site (last week in Oct).
We are looking forward to seeing les grues flying over.
