Spring in Catalonia

Since I wrote the last blog, the weather has turned more than a little chilly and we had some snow. Yes, Snow.

We have been here for five years and missed the last incidence of snow by seven months. There was a morning in early February 2010 when the previous incumbent at the farm awoke to about 10 cm of snow sitting on his olive and almond trees. All were very glad to be rid of it, which was fortunately later that day. This years dusting started at about 7 in the morning and was finished by lunchtime.There was quite a bit of wind so it didn’t hang around.

Snow on the mountains behind Tortosa.

Snowy mountains. Not quite ski slopes.
