I have just heard from a contact in France that there was  a snowfall for the first time (apparently) in 50 years to the west of Narbonne. Has anybody any further info? Has it all cleared at this stage? What areas were affected?

Yes, there was about 6" one Saturday at end Jan, but rain next day cleared it. Then just for a change we had our second flood since we arrived in Oct. However this winter has been strange, not just in France, but also in England - so cannot make any pattern out of it. They have certainly had snow in the Narbonne region before, a French woman I sat next to on the trip over at Christmas spoke about making snowmen - but there wasn't really enough snow for that she said. So I guess it is unusual but not unknown - a bit like snow in London I suspect - rare, but not unknown.

All the locals say the current weather is atypical - but how much credence you put on that, well, I think I'll wait to see what a few more winters bring .....
