...heaviest snowfall in Paris since 1987
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Paris...Place de La Bastille....in front of the Opera....beginning at about noon 3-4 inches of snow fell today...not much compared to what other regions of France might receive during the year, but record-breaking for Paris...Airports are experiencing long delays (some cancellations) as well as major highways being backed-up.
Roads and streets in the city were icy making motorcycle driving and even walking hazardous..in some cases impossible.
