We don't get much snow here in Saint-Aignan, so when we do, it's kind of fun. Of course, we're not out driving in it. The most snow we've had in the five years we've lived here was about five inches that lasted a few days on the ground. Mostly, the snow doesn't stick. If it does, it melts within a few hours.
This is a brief video of Thursday's snow event. It's taken from the bedroom window, looking pretty much westerly. There was actually some accumulation to the west of us, making for ugly traffic conditions. We heard all about it on the news.
Of course, Thursday morning, when it started to snow, Ken and I immediately declared it a snow day and did not go to school.
Today, Friday, it's much warmer outside - over 6ºC - even though it's not yet 7:30 am as I type this. But there is a bit of rain out there. It's my turn to walk Callie, so I'll be out there in it. She doesn't mind light rain, but if it pours, she wants to go inside. Good dog!
Today one or both of us will be heading out to Super U for some light shopping. This is a holiday weekend in France; November 1 is la Toussaint, or All Saints Day. Kids have been on vacation all week (I know, that information totally renders my snow day joke pointless) and the stores might be a mess today. Oh well.
Happy Halloween to all. Boo.
