snow snow snow

21 Jan

It has been snowing off and on for the past four days. It sounds way more impressive than it actually is – we only have about four or five inches of snow on the ground. That’s still more than in Paris proper. I think there’s some sort of dark weather magic going on, where Sevres has a slightly different micro-climate despite only being 15km away from the city center. We must be on the wrong side of the river or something.

It doesn’t even have the decency to be good snowman snow. I had the lovely task of clearing off the outside stairs and sidewalk this afternoon, since they were kind of an icy deathtrap and I’d like to avoid breaking any bones. Call it enlightened self-interest. Still, it’s very pretty out. It’d be nicer if my boots didn’t leak, but you can’t have everything.
