Last weekend the weather was bouncing around all over the place. On Friday there was fresh snow, great to ski, and the Sierra looked wonderfully wintry once more.
Then Friday night and Saturday it rained heavily – once more – right up to the tops of the mountains..washing away the fresh snow and leaving visible the layer of African sand brought by the winds of the previous week. Making for reddish-brown or even, some would say, pink snow.
I have to say the colour didn’t like me very much..and it wasn’t great snow to ski either. Anyway on Sunday we got out for what may be my son’s last day of ski this year..and it was ok despite the dodgy colours and textures.
There were reports about sand from the Sahara reaching even as far as Britain last week. I’m off to the Alps next week and i sure hope those winds didn’t swing towards the center of Europe!
