Across Europe and North America (from what I’ve read about the Bills v Colts game) there was a lot of snow yesterday. Even the ever-reliable Swiss train service was affected between St Maurice and Brig and 100 cars were ‘stuck’ and had to be rescued on the motorway.
So, what a day to run out of milk! It snowed all day in Evolène yesterday and we had the most snow we’ve ever seen in the 6 and half years we’ve lived here. I didn’t measure it, but I can confirm that the snow was thigh deep!
After clearing a path to the end of our drive, I waded down to the main road where, amazingly, cars were still running by and walking was somewhat easier thanks to the partially cleared snow. On the way back, I helped our neighbour dig out his car from our parking area before he headed down our (n.b. uncleared) road. I followed with the shovel in case he got stuck, but he sailed down (with his chains on of course) with a light bow-wave of snow brushing across his bonnet.
