John's birthday

It was snowing and no visibility as we caught the 8.50 bus to Jaillet. At the top it was still snowing but horizontally.  We discussed going down in the bubble or braving the elements and skiing down and the latter won.   The blue piste was so nice that we decided to go up again but this time we skied down to Combloux.  Coming up the Pertuis chair  was no fun:  a strong wind and a blizzard so we said we'd call  it a day and go home.  We skied off piste to the bottom and the snow was lovely, but it was getting out of the wind which was the main thing.   About half an hour after we got back the sun came out and I'm now looking at blue sky.  How wrong can you be!  So the moral of the story is that we should have had a lie in and gone out at elevenses!   Oh well, John is now investigating a plumbing problem and I'm reading the paper.
It should be good tomorrow but in the meantime this is a view from our balcony in Megeve.
