Winter in Asturias

Winter? But it's almost May! I woke up on Sunday, however, to a crisp, brilliant white landscape and falling snow. It's melted now, although it's still pretty damn freezing. The previous couple of winters here have been a lacklustre affair without the heavy snowfalls I'd become accustomed to -  a little dusting here and there, and that was about it. This winter, as you can see below, was a different kettle of fish altogether (and has been rather a shock to the system, and the cats). What I can say, though, is that the landscape has been stunning. Enjoy the photos!

Lovely! I particularly like the one of the mountain silhouetted against the forbidding sky. Although I expect after a winter like this you (and the cats) will be looking forward to some warm sunny weather.

Why thank you very much!

And in fact, we have warm,sunny weather right now. It's amazing how quickly it can change - my neighbour is outside working in shorts and a strapless top, it's that hot, and the cats are who-knows-where, except for Beeps and Mahou who are sunbathing on the top balcony.

Hi Raelha! I've been reading your blog for a bit, and was wondering if I could email you regarding information about moving to Asturias? I looked it up on your profile, but the link doesn't seem to work. Thank you very much!
