Mountains and Valleys: Weather Report

Rabelais, Gargantua and Pantagruel III.28 (Friar John speaking to Panurge; tr. J.M. Cohen):
When the snows are on the mountains—the head and the chin, I mean—there's no great heat in the valleys of the cod-piece.

Quand les neiges sont ès montaignes, je diz la teste et le menton, il n'y a pas grand chaleur par les vallées de la braguette!
