Snow in Paris is rare and unlike Chicago, they can go an entire Winter and not see snow at all… When I first visited Paris in the Winter they mentioned they were about to get snow and everyone was on high alert since they don’t know what to do in a city that doesn’t see snow often. When I moved to Paris in 2013 it was a dream to see snow. I checked the forecast often and I even missed a snow day in January which I thought may be the only chance for snow. Luckily I was granted my wish not once but twice in 2013. One just happened to be my sister’s birthday so I remember the day quite well.
I woke up to a blanket of snow. It wasn’t a crazy amount of snow but enough to slow the city down and dust my Montmartre rooftops. I ventured out both times and if you could have seen my face, I am pretty sure my face hurt from smiling so much. Some of these I have shared over the years but the whole collection you are about to see has been hidden on my hard drive until now. I hope that you will have the chance to see Paris covered in snow in person but until then here is Paris in the Snow.
