Wintery Weather

Cold, ice, & snow – oh my!

Sure, it gets cold in winter months on the French Riviera, but ice and snowy conditions are very rare.  During my recent visit to the Washington D.C. area, there was a winter storm affecting the East coast, and sure enough, I experienced an ice storm, followed by snow accumulations of about 10-12 inches.  Nice to look at, but definitely not the nice/NICE weather I’m used to. Beautiful to look at, but happy to be back home to warmer temps!

One Winter Day in Provence

The cuts into the hillside are also brown and lifeless.

Some fields spring eternal with dustings of greenery.

While Fall leaves hang on tightly,

Some without sucess.

Undressed vines unprotected from the elements.

And trees stripped and beheaded, waiting for the salvation of Spring.
