Me too. It was recommended by one of the forum users on here, and I find it very accurate.

Hi folks
The local paper has given snow in the high Correze from tonight and continuing for four days. We have the emergancy food supplies stockpiled and the logs stacked ready with the extra gas cylinder on standby.So it's batten down the hatches and secure the drink supplies.

Don't think we're getting any near Limoges. It's getting colder though isn't it.

Snowed here last night but then turned to rain and so now just cold grey and miserable. It looks like some of you in Correze and Creuse got a good coating though?

Here on the western edge of Creuse, half way between Limoges and Gueret at 500m I  had about 3 inches overnight and it has just started snowing again.

Bit early this year !

About 3 inches here overnight and more to come by the looks of it.

Took the spinach and andijvie (a Dutch veggie) off the land just in time. Must "faire blanchir" it all now to freeze it.

540m at 19320 and the snow started falling around midnight last night.  Couple of inches this morning but very impressed as even though we live at what the agent called au bout du monde and it's an impasse, the lane had been cleared of snow this morning before we ventured downstairs for breakfast.  Snow been falling throughout the day but above freezing so no more settled.  Took opportunity to dig out Christmas hats, earrings and take a few photos for what will be our first Christmas card to send to Angleterre.  Oh, how I love living here.  K.

Cleared by the rain that fell during the night most likely Wink ? Still, it is quite impressive how much the local mairies do to clear the roads. I think the cantonniers quite like to play with their tractopelles ...

know what you mean about the rain but, snow in the garden lovely and white but definitely human effort to clear the lane as I heard activity but too early for me to go and see .....but tracks where they had turned vehicle round remain! Note to self - stop off and thank Maire and his gang!

Ok! A thankyou would most certainly be appreciated, I am sure.

In case you're having trouble with the lingo, you could say: "Merci beaucoup, monsieur le Maire, pour dégager la route." I think that's correct...

You're lucky, we don't live out in the sticks, and we get snowed in for three weeks at a time in the winter!
No-one clears our lane, so you are very lucky.

Have to say apart from tracters going past to feed cows .nobody clears either of our two small roads into our hamlet ,and the maire lives 2 minutes away off the main route ,so we can be snowbound as well.

Seen reports of freezing fog from Sunday to Tuesday, but seen no forecasts of snow yet, still that doesn't mean a lot. We know how reliable the weather forecast is Suspect No rendeer  .
