Fabulous iReports from our friends across the pond. I love the white stuff and am super envious. Go out and play in it!
why such a big deal europes always been cold from france and upward.
it looks really nice...i live in Costa Rica..no snow here..only a beautiful summer weather..and some rain too...
I saw worse in Bavaria three decades back. Have the Europeans gotten that soft?
Great timing...hope it all sticks around so they can all enjoy a "White Christmas"!!
enjoy it while it last you wont see many of those global warming
@L121 I dont think you have ever been to Europe. The climate in Paris: In Winter, sunshine is scarce; days are cool but generally above freezing with temperatures around 7°C. Light night frosts are however quite common, but the temperature will dip below −5 °C (23 °F) for only a few days a year. Snowfall is rare, but the city sometimes sees light snow or flurries with or without accumulation.
In big parts of France, Spain, Portugal and Italy it never freezes or snows.
And Paris is in Northern France. In Southern France it will never freeze or snow.
The climate in southern France:
Marseille has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, humid winters and hot, dry summers. January and February are the coldest months, averaging temperatures of around 8 to 9 °C (48 °F). July and August are the hottest months. The mean summer temperature is around 23 to 24 °C (75 °F). In July the average maximum temperature is around 30 °C (86 °F).
So, the French are not really used to this snow and cold weather. Unless you live in the mountains. So please stop these ignorant comments. Do some research first.
I'm dreamimg of a white Christmas, as long as it's someplace else.
The environmentalist warned us about global cooling back in the 70's said the planet was doomed.
But did we listen? Oh NO....
HOPE EUROPE IS WIPE AND COVER FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH??
