let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

It's finally winter here in Paris, and after a week of temps in the mid-20s during the day, it actually snowed on Wednesday! Apparently it was a record snowfall since 1987.


0°C! I guess that's cold enough for it to snow, huh?

Even some of the buses had pertubations and were eventually shut down due to intempéries (bad weather) for the day.

I guess you could take a Velib instead?


I think going to school in Maine helped me deal with this a little bit, but I think I'm a true southern Californian at heart. Definitely warmed up with the help of a little stand attached to Le Comptoir at Odeon:

a buckwheat crêpe with ham, artichokes, mozzarella, marinated red peppers, and roquette salad

can you say anything but yum??

a few bites of plain crêpe can't hurt anyone before digging in...

...digging into this delicious goodness! Yup, you definitely saw me sit on the bus stop "waiting for the bus that would never come" just so I could enjoy my lunch during the snowy blizzard.


  1. I want that crèpe!

  2. So lucky we missed all that COLD!!!! Plus the storm on the Mediterranean!!!! Make the most of every moment...Paris will have a place in your heart FOREVER!
