A friend in Paris emailed this photo to share. It's been snowing there -- a lot, by Paris standards! She writes: "Paris hasn't been the worst hit. The Loire Valley, Champagne regions and the Finistère region of Brittany have been completely snowed in as well. Because the snow rarely sticks in this part of France, no one owns a snow shovel, and Parisians probably don't even realize they're legally supposed to shovel outside their shops." Enjoy her video.
