Pixie spent the end of September hunting apples and all kinds of small animals in the garden under my watchful eye.
We went from summer to winter between September and October without any transition: temperatures dropped sharply, and snow appeared at low altitudes before Mother Nature remembered that after summer should come autumn. She therefore readjusted the weather, but the dosage was not yet up to date, as intense rains in recent days have caused significant damage in some areas.
Near us, the Rhone quickly rose by almost 1 meter (3.3 ft): overflows and landslides were to be feared in places, and access to the banks was forbidden. We live in the Rhone Plain, and the risk of flooding in the event of a major flood is real. Fortunately, the rains stopped, and the warning could be lifted.
We needed a good nap to recover from our emotions !
