Exactly, I've only chipped my elbow and hit my head pretty hard. Over the holidays, an old high school friend broke his back in 3 spots on just one step. It is absolutely insane how much momentum you can fall with when there is very little surface friction.
We just got hit by a couple of days of cold weather with the lowest temperature around 5°C (41°F) last night and 3°C (37°F) tonight. I know it is not the same as what you are experiencing, but I am currently in our house in Baja, right by the beach. There is a strong wind blowing in from the ocean and it seems like it comes straight through the walls of this 60 year old house with no insulation, no built-in heaters and single pane glass.
It is not a whole lot of fun going to the bathroom in the middle of the night on days like this .
Fortunately it looks like it will be warming up again starting Wednesday.

Oh, is St Tropez the only place in France with a beach?
He said St Tropez was a pot of crapola, and I was wondering how he could tell the difference between there and any other place in France.
I once exited the Gare du Nord and the first thing I saw was a tramp taking a sh*t on the street.
Paris, the most romantic city in the world!
(Note : Nice is absolutely fine, especially the Old Town part up the top end of Quai des États-Unis, they have the market there and one of the best fish restaurants I have ever eaten in.)

If people say they enjoy the "scenery" of a night club, it is rarely about the green grass outside.
That's exactly what you can expect from a place like St. Tropez. The glamour comes from people not the place; and most of them helicopter in. This warps the economy of such a place and drives away everyone with a pinch of esthetics, running the place into the ground quickly.
You don't go to St. Tropez because of the beach, you go there because of the people hanging out there, and when they don't you don't go either. You don't go to the beach, but to the party in convenient but non-threatening distance of the beach.
And what I fail to see is how these 'convinced of their own importance' types can;t see thorough the shoddy and grim surroundings. But of course that is the point, they are so shallow they really cant.
I had a similar experience a few years ago when I and some colleagues drove down to Hollywood Boulevard in LA. My first impression was that we had misread the sign and arrived in skid row. The bit outside Grauman's[^] was the only redeeming feature.
