First Snowfall of the Season

We got up this morning and saw that it snowed last night here in Versailles. It may snow again on Thursday.  Temperatures during the week will range from -6 to 1 degree Celsius.

I had to salt the front and back porch steps because it's pretty icy out there.  I was going to head into Paris today but I may change my mind and stay home and enjoy the snow while it lasts.  It's surely nothing compared to what my daughter experiences in Quebec but for Versailles it's rare enough to be savored.

Here are a few pictures from where I sit (Porchefontaine district).

If the light gets better (pretty gloomy right now) I'll take some more this afternoon and post them.

Hi, Victoria. Wonderful pictures of the snowfall at your new house! It is cold here at home in Twin Peaks, California, where we have been for a little over three weeks now. We have had several snowfalls, one that kept us parking down the hill and hiking 1 1/2 miles up here because the rental car wouldn't climb up the ice. Now we have bought an all wheel drive that loves the ice and snow. We have lots of trees surrounding our cabin, so the ice melts last. Love the fact you found several flowering plants that you can nurse and watch flower in the spring. Also great to see you are feeling better. Out of those dark times. Yeah.
Love
