    Cloudy start, fine sunny afternoon but cold.
    "Tried" to snow a little this morning, nothing to write home about.
    Just so you know what it's like at home.

    Yup. I'm spreading large quantities over my body, I may just survive this way.

    BBC is saying we head for Essaouira on Tue, so maybe you you don't go there.

    Here in Tafraoute by the standards we have come to expect as normal, the day has been cooler about 18 deg. against the high 20's we have got used to, we have had some wind but that has died down, we had rain showers in the night but no rain in the day.

    Tafraout today

    Much cooler today with the odd sunbeam later in the afternoon. No daytime rain to speak of :getmecoat:.

    The outside temperature was so much below what has been experienced during the last two weeks and the reason for the beer o'clock and Petanque championship cancellation. :cry:

    Forecast improving and back to normal by Wednesday :Smile:

    We have had that blown sand thing with the gales.
    Not from a desert, though.
    From those bloody fields on Scotter Bottom!

    Bloody freezing here at taliouine and drizzle off and on. A bit of proper rain has washed some of the sand off the roof of the van so we can actually see out of the skylight now. And presumably the solar panels will be doing their job a bit more effectively.

    Judging by the mediocre weather reports I'm not feeling so bad that we've had to delay our trip over until late March.
    Hopefully those of you who will be at the meet nr. Malaga can give us few tips when we meet up

    We really need some sun now :Cool:
