It should be cold this time of the year, but it's not.
We have maybe had one or two mornings with white frost, but that's all.
Repeated storms with wind and rain can be spine-chilling though.
The heavy rain, the high tide and the inbound winds make the sea level rise far above the expected.
There are people in Fécamp who don't sleep well when the storms start, as they know that they will have to start the pumping. They won't ever get used to it, they say, shivering all over.
