Indeed! It can get really windy in autumn especially in the south part of France, close to Spain, it gets really strong wind. It’s so strong it gives you headache and it’s known to drive people crazy and you can get sick pretty easily so scarfs are good.

Yeah, this and the coat and a bit more and another pullover.
8. manteau “coat”
Mets ton manteau, tu vas attraper un rhume! “Put on your coat; you're going to catch a cold!”

9. froid “cold”

Until this winter and then it doesn’t have any anymore. Sad…the leaves get so beautiful in autumn with all the colors.
