From sun and sand to 48hrs of rain, ice and snow

we headed north to see mt. blanc (tallest peak in europe) and more to the point, play in some snow. what we got instead after the 11hr drive (should have been 7 but got held up by two traffic jams and two major deviations that had us driving around mountains and some of the windiest roads ever), was 48hrs of non stop rain, freezing freezing cold (my target jumpers were no match for this), and a serious reconsidering of what we were doing. Luckily everything cleared up and the third day was magical (if you ignore the 10,000 other tourists that were as excited as we were!). also nipped over to Geneva for the day and stuffed ourselves on swiss choc......
