Huge Snowstorm in Southwestern France in May
6 inches of snow fall in Southern France out of nowhere
I couldn't believe my eyes today. Global warming is out of control. I came home from a nice walk in Toulouse. The weather was warm and pleasant. It looked like it might rain. It was a little humid and balmy but warm. Instead a snowstorm of a magnitude I have never seen before was unleashed. It poured rain, sleet, and snow for nearly 1 hour straight. The sleet and snow was battering my terrace windows and doors. It sounded like a drumline. There was almost 8 inches of accumulation. You might think so what, but this is southern France and it is May 15th. This is unprecendented. Global Warming is very real.
Look at this snow from today!
