Light snow in Anjou

 A light dusting of snow in the Coteaux de l'Aubance from Brissac-Quincé
Left London early this morning to head out to the Loire for the annual Salon des Vins de Loire in Angers, which starts on Monday. No snow in northern France – Calais/Rouen – but from Le Mans onwards the remains of the fall from last Monday. As in the UK it is intensely cold here.
