We were very happy to be in Ojai this winter
when we received news and photos of the weather they were having in France!
They had heavy snow that caused havoc on the roads for the first time in decades.
Then when the snow melted the rivers rose to flood levels. The Seine rose so much that they had to stop all navigation
in Paris because there wasn't enough clearance to pass under the bridges!
The pontoons in our port are normally low and we have to go down steep walkways to reach the docks. The water rose
so much that our docks rose to make the walkways horizontal. The sign "bienvenue" is normally a few meters above
water level. The photos with the snow give a good idea of the normal water level in the port.
