I visited Chablis today – still 22°C but with a cooler wind. April almost brought a new record here – a daytime temperature of 31°C, but more impressive, one night of 20°C. But all change just now…
Yesterday evening into this morning brought 2°C, and both Monday and Tuesday nights to come are forecast at 0°C.

First, this week’s trilogy:
