Snowy Paris

Snow in Europe has caused chaos and disruption, and has been publicised all over the world. Even more annoying and frustrating was that it was the week before Christmas, one of the busiest travel times of year. Airports closing and flights cancelled, even trains were cancelled and delayed.

It really has been snowing quite a bit here in Paris. In December for a week or two it snowed almost every day.

Tuileries Gardens, after it had been snowing. All the gardens and parks are closed when it becomes too slippery.

The airports in Paris such as Charles De Gaulle and Orly were closed several times. In Paris, everyone went “oh why is that, there isn’t much snow here.” Well because the airports are located outside of Paris, there is a lot more snow there. Apparently some planes were frozen to the ground! A few days after Christmas I went with my family out into the country side to our friends place. And oh my, how different things were! There was so much snow!

Snow is extremely picturesque but in reality, after it has been snowing for several days straight, the novelty definitely wears off as everything becomes wet and sloshy and the ground becomes icy and slippery. Which results in poor clumsy people like myself slipping over a lot all the time.
