So cold the fountain froze

Europe is in the grips of terrible cold and snow and this is the coldest winter for the last sixty years in Spain. We aren't faring too badly. Yesterday we had gale force winds and a temperature of one degree with bright blue skies. There were very few cars on the road and no hookers at their usual spots along the road to Figueres. It was brutally cold at the Figueres market and even the fountain in the square was frozen.

Although we will get more winds this week today we have some respite with a temperature of seven degrees celsius. We watched the cold temperatures of other places in Spain and the pictures of snow in Rome while we had our coffee inside for a change at the Nautica. It hasn't mattered that we can't really go off walking as we watched three 6-Nations rugby games on TV. Cold, windy but not a bad weekend.
