THE WEATHER

Ah!! The weather ! As it is so important ! and the time flowing therefore ! Both sometimes frighten you as you are in your always to short hollidays and to a slight extend, cold and watered. Happily, we profit by the famous microclimat, the one which makes the travellers smilling, sceptical, incredulous, a little bit mocking when coming from the South or moreover from somewhere else they cross the entrance of the house wet through. And however...Since 15 years, that i look at the rain gauge in my garden, the situation is far from doing a dramatic state. No, Cap Sizun is not Island! It is not snowing in august; sometimes even we have flirted with the dry climat without being in extraordinary situation as in 1976 or 2003. Audierne is far more different from Quimper, 30kms away. And what to say about this difference when the Monts d'Arrées are crossed. Have you got snow in Winter ? Yes, one week in 1990. Here Ocean decides on many things; Brittany is always green. Everythings grow, it is true . From Trachycarpus to Taxodium distichum, from Parotia persica to Chriptomeria japonica. The grass grows even in winter, impertinent. The most difficult period in my opinion - because i often think of the roof of the house - is between january and the end of april. The weather is rough; There are trains of depressions which pass turning from Soutwest to Northwest, without giving notice. Alternation of weat weather and dry and cold air. I remember of some january months when the meteo has recorded 15 days tempests : It means a depression which "returns" every two days. No fun to be offshore ! Spring is , as elsewhere mervellous. Sommer you already know. And automn equinox time for high tides alternates from indian summer (more and more) to the first weat freyneses... We close !!! November, december are the coldest periods untill the beginning of january. We carefully follow the capacities of the anticyclone of Siberia to come over the region to block the atlantique depressions. When it is there, temperatures fall down . We opend the whole house. Strange ! do you say. Not at all . We organize big drafts. BrrrBrrrr, we freeze ! Fortunatly, we know that it is just for a moment. Tomorrow will be fine because the dry air is easyer to warm up than weat air. The central stove, the famous machinery hums and we feel well. Here is the climat, perfectly balanced and besides we beneficiate of thermic breezes.........
