Many people here are not so happy with me just now because they feel I have brought with me weather from the UK.
Autumn here is usually a time of sun and clear blue skies, but this year from the middle of August to the beginning of October it has rained HEAVILY almost every day.
Water levels here are higher than in spring after the snow has melted and areas of forest and marsh are flooded.
The snow usually arrives in early October and although we had one day of snow on 7th October, there has been no more since. Both Hare (Lepus timidus) and Stoat (Mustela erminea) have their white winter coats now and await the snows arrival.
