Montmartre in the snow

Here is my little photo report about yesterday's heavy snow in Paris. Most of it melted this morning, but now it is snowing again, so who knows?

I always enjoy your photos kerouac! Thanks so much. Enjoy the cold. You really can see so much more structure without all those pesky leaves in the way

Very pretty pictures.

Don't know about "heavy snow" in Paris - what was it - about 4 inches. (For us "heavy" would be 18" and up).

Indeed -- it was just 4 or 5 inches at the most, which is about 4 or 5 inches more than we normally get. Today was black slush day (not photogenic in the least). Right now it is snowing again (as it has been for the last 3 hours), but the temperature has not yet dropped below freezing, so there is no new snow report in the works yet.

Love the cat on the statue, and the fact that the artists were still out there with umbrellas over their easels.

All the pix are fabulous--but I especially love the ones with the cat.

Merci, Kerouac! What a lovely trip to Paris you gave us. I've been lucky enough to have enjoyed Paris in the snow and it is quite magical.
