Paris

ParisWell this is snow time in most of France,and we were not spare. Brittany is under snow of just one inch and already causing problems; by nightime the snow was mostly gone but still some icy spots. IN the Paris area it was worse, school transport was stopped and the Paris airports had some delays and cancellations.

In the Paris region is still snowing ,here it has stopped. So bear in mind the ice specially. IN other regions came to -4C in Normandy. Rennes had 3-5 cm of snow, really nothing for my previous residences but here it is a mess.  Poitiers had  heavier snow at Futuroscope. It is big news here but really no big deal when you are use to 30 and more cm of snow from living in New Jersey USA for 13 years lol!!!

Paris will have -1C or about 30F so be careful with the ice. Sunday will continue to have snow in Paris.  The RER A is having late and delays; as well as RER B the one connecting to the CDG airport. RER C to Versailles is normal.  all info is here http://www.transilien.com/trafic/etattrafictravaux/init
