I was told that this area, this canton of Vaud, has a long winter and a short summer. Now I have verified the statement by my own experience. It is an aesthetically pleasing experience to look across Lake Leman and see those huge French Alps rising from the water and the land or to turn in the opposite direction and to see the Swiss Alps jutting upward, but it is not an enjoyable feeling to have their cold icy winds blowing down on and cutting into one's body.
