Snow in Spain = Chaos

This morning it was snowing in Spain, and of course also over here.
In south Catalonia, the Comarca Priorat in the province of Tarragona.

The still not used to snow. Schools are closed, bodegas also, the whole region is closed!
Transport companies stay at home, and the radio is the whole day telling about the news and the chaos on traffic jams etc. The toll roads  are open and free for all the traffic.

But not here where we live, no cars and absolute silence on the roads..and families taking pictures. 

Mas Personas, the stove make overtime, due to the quality wood of the almonds and olive trees.

Winter in Spain  2015.

Pruning the vines at Terra Personas

These weeks we are active with the pruning of the vines. The garnacha, Carinena, Syrah and the Cabernet sauvignon, has the be trimmed. To two eyes short on the cordon format.
The weather is changing, rain, possible snow!
We can not cut the vines when they are wet, so we wait!

Old carinena planted in 1972

Garnacha on trellis planted in 2008
