Snow storm



As some of you may have heard on the news, Paris and the area has been under a snow storm yesterday when 11 cm of snow fell in one afternoon which did not happen since 1987. Sorry I can't share a nice view of Paris under the snow but only this view from my office window that I took while I was wondering how I was going to get back home (I work in the north suburb). I wisely decided to leave my car at the office and come back to Paris by train and I was happy with that choice when I saw on the news that lots of people had to sleep in their car last night stuck on the highways.

Be careful in that crazy weather! I still think Paris is beautiful covered in snow

I think "ville lumiere" with snow is magic.

I did wish for the snow for my Paris visit but the snow storm of yesterday was a bit much. I am home safely but I hope that Holly was walking the streets for snow-shots yesterday... brrrrr!

Glad you took the train home, Laurent!

Wise decision to opt for the train. Nothing worse that being stuck in your car in a snowstorm! Hope the streets are cleared soon.
