It had actually started snowing early last week, intermittently, through the night, all traces gone by the morning, like a hazy one night stand. However, late Friday night when it was realised that the snow wasn't going to turn into an icy drizzle and slowly, surely, started turning all manners of motor vehicles and street furniture white, did everyone fully rejoice that the snow was here to stay.
Waking Saturday morning to snow
The Mairie deemed the Square des Batignolles too dangerous under ice and closed it to the public. Les enfants and their Papas had to make their snowmen in the street. It was so sad to see!
It is surreal to think that in 6 months from now this stretch of lawn will be covered in people with their tops off, sun bathing!
And now it's Monday, and the magic has tuned to dirty slush. Back to work, back to reality. We'll be super lucky to get another weekend like the one we just had, but with Spring still a couple of months off here's hoping.
