Icy weekend

I had my usual weekend exit permit, but spent most of it indoors, as outside an icy wind blew from the north, bringing with it the usual flurry of snowflakes from the mountains above.

Although temperatures hover round zero, there is still a water ban against washing cars etc.  Apart from the very occasional downpour, we have now had a drought for about six months.

I took these photos on Saturday.  A day later the bassin was completely frozen over. Maybe the drought explains the continuing high activity by the sangliers, who have virtually dug over the top three terraces.
