It’s nothing new to any business traveller reading this post, but this is all I saw of Paris during my trip – and probably all I will see.  However I still thought it was worth sharing.  The snow wasn’t as bad as what I saw on the news in London, but it covered Paris in fluffy white rather quickly.

My meetings are outside Paris but I took the above shot very early this morning from my hotel balcony.  Click to get the larger view to see some of the snow flakes near the street light and the car’s headlamps.  The snow storm got a little heavier later and I just heard that 30 flights were cancelled at Paris CDG Airport earlier today.  I’m further south now, and there is no sign of snow. The forecast suggests -3˚c  and snow showers.

On a frosty morning like today, one of the best feelings is to wrap up well and go for an early morning walk.  To be the first person across the crunchy frosted grass is a privilege worth waking up for – even during a holiday.

It was -5°C last night.  This was taken at our local park when there were only three other people there, all with dogs.  It was dry, crisp and there was no wind.  

Within an hour, the park was full of its usual Sunday traffic of rugby and football teams and their small crowds.
