Where’s Your Snow Shovel?

Local Chateau

Back from France, where I have advanced my snow and ice driving skills in a hired Megane. Initially there’s nothing quite as scary as descending mountain roads with switchbacks in conditions when you can’t see and road markings and the side of the road which has a sheer drop is only protected by broomstick handles painted red (aka snow poles). Bizarrely, after doing it two or three times, the fear is gone and replaced with a rather more hardened view in that if it was really that dangerous they’d have done something about it by now. Anyway if owning a snow shovel is a prerequisite for living on the plateau we are one step closer.
