A brilliantly sunny day today, but what a difference a few days of rain or snow has made!
We have had a bit of rain in the past few days, after most of the year has been pretty dry.
This weir was almost non-existent for months, but now it is in full force, as are a number of waterfalls round about, including one we can hear from the house.
The local ski stations have been totally devoid of snow and unable to open. The rain we have witnessed has fallen as snow higher up the mountains. Again, we have been able to see some on the hills in front of our windows. The bit peaking over Lavelanet market in the picture is actually much nearer to skiing. A limited number of runs have been able to open.
