April (Snow) Showers

News flash: As I write, it is snowing in Paris. A lot.

Winters are typically mild here, at least since I’ve lived in France. We’ve had only the briefest dusting of snow all year — in fact, it may not have been snow at all, but just a guy with dandruff shaking his head somewhere above me. Suddenly, now, the neighborhood is draped in a thin blanket of white. If it sticks in daylight, I’ll post a picture.

Update: No such luck. You will have to settle for these pictures of Act III of La Bohème instead.
