Yipeeeee....It's going to snow tomorrow.

Dead excited.

Has not snowed here properly for yonks.

I bet that Andy has spent the whole day digging out his house in the Ardeche. LOL.

It's started here, just tiny flakes so far but it's the first we've had since early winter.
Blinkin' cold too.

No 'quelques flocons' (I love that phrase) just yet.

But it has gone very dark and grey.

Fingers crossed. I want 10 cm's at least.

The kids want their school to close... but the school is only a 3 mins walk. So that is really not going to happen. Lol.

Flocons is just a lovely word - quelques flocons, flocons d’avoine etc.

Some pics of snow in Paris, although not a lot of snow, definitely not 10cms:

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Sorry to disappoint. it did not stop until 16:00 and then there was about 5-8cm to clear - unlike around 10 days ago when we had a 35cm dump of snow in 24hrs.

"The kids want their school to close... but the school is only a 3 mins walk. So that is really not going to happen. Lol."

Is that logic? Doesn't it depend on whether the teachers also live 3 mins walk away? If no-one else can get in, it won't open specially for your kids. Maybe you will all be able to build bonhommes de neige after all.
It's so long since I built a snowman.

I hope you up to your oxters in it.
At any time the urge to sing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" is only a whim away.
