The snow is again in the Douro – bring the skiis, we have some nice slopes

Snowed vineyards in the DouroThe snow is covering the Douro valley of white. Beautiful scenario in a very cold and rainy Winter so far. At the same time, these cold temperatures are helping in the clearing of the wines. But enough is enough and also our pet thinks we don’t need more cold. Spring, we are all waiting for you…

    Woww! How beautiful! We got a bit of snow flurries in the Alentejo on Sunday, but it melted as soon as it hit the ground, and today the temperature is predicted to hit +15º ! Jan 2006 we got our first snowfall in 52 years! (like in your foto). Last Jan 2009 we got another one! Global warming effects our climate in strange ways

    This is definitively a very strange global warming Carrie. I don’t remember so much snow in the valley, and I’m already 26. This is probably the coldest Winter of this decade. Lets see what the Summer will bring us.

    Maravillosa foto Oscar. Me estoy pensando lo de los esquís. Pero los remontes… Hay que hacerlos a pata?
    Un abrazo

    Efectivamente Ignacio, no hay otra opción que volver andando! De todos modos no me importaría subir andando. Lo que me ha mantenido apartado de intentarlo fue la existencia de alguna piedra mas levantada…
