Today, we are being treated to full-on blizzard conditions. It is bitterly cold (-7deg C) with strong winds blowing the fine, powdery snow in all directions. It is the wind that is unusual. Normally, we will experience a few strong gusts as a front moves in and then calm returns. But this wind has been sustained since the early hours this morning. I would not like to guess what the windchill could be. The forecast is for it to continue through into tomorrow. I am booked onto a first aid course with the Red Cross in Foix over the weekend and am hoping I will be able to make it. And then on Monday morning, we start our journey back to the UK where we will be spending the next couple of weeks. Conditions really need to improve over the weekend if we are to get away safely.
