neutral  Victoria Barkoff: "valey floor" might be better than "valley bottom"
1 hr
  -> you'e right, is more poetic and less meteo :)

neutral  ydmills: But I think it should be 'is covering' not 'has covered'
9 hrs
  -> ops, you're right too!

disagree  Karin Dyson: épargne is spares so it means no snow in the valley
9 hrs
  -> you are right too, and this is the last straw - sometimes to give a try is quite risky for the asker, as well as closing the q so soon - I'm very sorry
