Then I went to St Sym for the weekend. It’s in les Monts du Lyonnaise and therefore at a higher altitude to Lyon.
Lyon is between 162 and 305 metres above sea level and St Sym is between 480 and 629 (thanks Wikipedia)! Which means, of course, it’s at least 2° colder in St Sym. It’s -9° as I type, and we’re heading towards a low of -14° tonight (Saturday).
I know I’ve been banging on about the cold and the snow this week, but let’s not forget I’m from a small beachside town, altitude of sea level! Plus Australia isn’t really known for its snow.
I miss the beach!
