So, no snow since before christmas. Was really warm, 12 degress centigrade on the mountain some days, then rained, and now finally cold but brilliantly sunny.
I was speaking to a local, my french wasn't good enough to completely understand all he was saying, but apparently it has something to do with the cycle of the moon and how the current cycle is causing the high pressure system over us at present.
He said that if you look at the almanac of weather and moon cycles you can see this trend in the past, and subsequently quite accurately predict these long dry spells of warm weather and sunshine.
This is the first time I've heard this. Was a full moon about a week ago or a little less, and it was very big and seemed really low on the horizon. Can anyone elaborate on this.
