October's around the corner. The slightest temperature drop makes me daydream about snowy days. I check the charts and realize that it's too early. Around here, the lows are not deep enough, cold fronts are weak... the air just got a bit crispier and that's about it. However, in the Alps and even in the Pyrenees, snow has already fallen. Is it a sign that global warming is reversing? I wish... Last year was one of the warmest of all time, particularly in the Haute Savoie region (northern french alps). Megève had been having the worst winter to date, with a record low of snow base. Luckily, in my second day there and after one morning of pouring rain, the temperature plummeted and good things started to happen :)
