Low water in the Arve

Earlier this fall when the news told of torrential downpours in central Europe some concerned readers asked us if we had any problems with the water level in the river right outside our front door. We therefore had to remind these readers that the Arve is mostly a glacial stream and thus the water level is generally lower in the fall. The mentioned downpours primarily served to delay the day when we could see how low the water could be. In fact there are practically beaches along long stretches of the river.
