Or not, because yesterday afternoon when I went to check the Météo de France web site it wasn't working. It continued not to work all evening and into the night.
I suspect that it's a case of too much traffic, because it was sunny and almost warm yesterday afternoon (-4°C) but rain is forecast. This means that by midday today we should finally have made it above freezing point for the first time this month, but a weather warning for icy roads will have been issued.
You can tell just how cold the last 10 days have been by the fact that our cast iron dauphin (first seen here) has split. It has obviously filled up with melted snow which froze again the instant it hit the cold metal, expanding and splitting the notoriously inflexible cast iron. I have been keeping a wary eye on the pipe for the past couple of days for just this reason, and am fairly sure that the pipe split at about 4.00pm yesterday afternoon.
Inside the house we are more or less warm, and considerably warmer than some unfortunate people whose heat pumps have given up the ghost. Low tech has its advantages sometimes.
cheering news - it will be warmer, but wetter. And yukky.
