What "Global Warming"!

Corine said...

I realize it does not help to hear this, but I think Paris still looks splendid in the snow :)

Kate said...

Peter, I feel your pain!!

Olivier said...

Paris sous la neige c'est beau, comme Evry, mais cela met un beau bordel ;o))

ALAIN said...

Toujours pas de neige à Montpellier, et ce matin, un beau soleil...

claude said...

Sale temps sur Paris !
Joli le vol de deux signe au-dessus de la capital.
Je dfois bientôt changer mes lunettes et ai eu du mal à voir les dernière photos de ton précédent post. Ne serait-ce-t-il pas un tailleur ? Juif bien sûr !
Je crois te l'avoir déjà dit mais je radote (ça doit être l'âge qui veut ça), lorsque nous allions au cours de danse dans le passage des Panoramas, il y avait un tailleur juif à qui nous allions toujours dire bonjour.

Claudia said...

I've had it with snow as well. It's about the same on this side of the English Channel. To top it off, our central heating system decided to go on strike this week. Brrrrr :(

Margarida said...

My thoughts exacly!!!
Today we have a polar front wind that is simply horrible!
Funny enough I thought it reminds me of parisian cold! LOL!
(I never felt so cold in my life as when I was there!)
Have a nice (and warmer) weekend!
:)

Ruth said...

The top photo is like a beautiful painting. I am not tired of it yet, which is good, because we just got a lot!

Adam said...

Quick - go out now! There's blue sky and sun, but it's still brass monkeys!

Catherine said...

Enough !? Enough ! Ca dépend ! Si tu fais tes photos depuis ta fenêtre, c'est supportable.
Tu as l'oeil d'un poête Peter.
Ces petites pattes étoilées qui cherchent leur chemin dans la neige sur laquelle elles pèsent si peu....c'est le genre de photos que j'adore.

Rob said...

Lovely snowy photos. I think we all have tired of winter and anxiously await spring. sigh, spring is a long time from now. But the footprints in the snow photo makes me smile.

Simony Silva said...

I may be crazy but I loved the bird's foot prints. I see poetry in your photos. Just like the birds, we are all anxious searching for better days, Spring and sunshine. It won't be long for them to come.
Take care!

Cheryl said...

The bird photo really is nice. But eh top photo conveys the misery of too many cold days. Not that I myself wouldn't mind experiencing that miserable snow...

Maya said...

I agree! But, it makes for nice photos like these...

Susan said...

That's what we're saying in Washington, DC metro area too...I've not been home in a week--no heat/power.

Spring is soon...

V Rakesh said...

Oh yes, the cold makes me feel dull and dreary and I long for the warm comfort of sunlight!

I missed a number of your previous posts until now and must say your daughter is a good photographer too!

Do convey my appreciation to her!

Mona said...

O dear! that looks awful! The news is cold from all corners of the nothern hemisphere this year!

Look at those poor flowers!!

Cezar and Léia said...

Hello dear Peter!
I'm also tired of this winter, I want sunny days.The last time that I saw the Sun was there, that Sunday in Paris! :)
Here we had also snow.:(
I had an awful "cold"this week, I think my bother is saying me enough as well. :)
We are going to travel for some days, but I think we will see much more snow there! :) pictures surprise soon!
Have a great holiday,
hugs
Léia

sonia a. mascaro said...

LOVE your snow and cold weather's photos! And LOVE also the view from your window!

Here it's a very hot summer with storms at the end of the day... sometimes in the middle of the day like just now...

Have a nice weekend.

hpy said...

Te plains pas, c'est pas tous les jours que tu as de la neige à Paris, et en plus, il fait beaucoup moins froid qu'en 1985! Cette année j'ai battu le record de +8° dans ma cuisine et salle d'eau! Un peu trop froid à mon goût.

PattiKen said...

Lovely photos! I really like the bird tracks!

I have an old photo of myself pulling a sled though the snow near Paris. We lived there for several years when I was a small child, and I loved it when it snowed. (I've gotten over that.)

arabesque said...

agree, too much snow isn't nice anymore... do hope the weather gets better. if you're experiencing too much of it, in here, it's too hot, i think we're more or less having "el nino". ^0^

Jilly said...

Oh yes, ADORE that top photo, Peter. Happy Valentine's Day!

B Alescio said...

Yes, there's snow and it's cold, but how else would you take such a beautiful photo as this first picture.

James said...

Well at least you got a nice picture with a great reflection in it. :)

Peter said...

BLOGitse:
Grooooving, sounds nice! :-)

Louis la Vache:
Yes? !-)

Corine:
Yes, it helps! :-)

Peter said...

Kate:
You are too kind! :-)

Olivier:
C'est surtout qu'il fait froid! :-)

Alain:
Tu as de la chance! :-)

Peter said...

Claude:
J'aime bien que tu radotes! :-)

Claudia:
Your hetaing system really chose the right moment! :-)

Margarida:
Trust you already have it warmer again! :-)

Peter said...

Ruth:
That's good spirit! :-)

Adam:
I actually did go out, the sky was blue... but the cold...! :-)

Catherine:
Si je prenais toutes mes photos de ma fenêtre, on se lasserait peut-être? :-)

Peter said...

Rob:
Just some small signs of spring would make me feel better! :-)

Simony Silva:
I don't know if the birds get cold feet? :-)

Cheryl:
You are welcome to appreciate the "miserable snow"! :-)

Peter said...

Maya:
At least some kind of comfort! :-)

Susan:
We have seen the images from Washington! ... and no heating! Brrr! :-)

V Rakesh:
I will convey! Thanks! :-)

Peter said...

Mona:
These flowers (whatever they are called) seem to resist surprisingly well! Happy to see you around again! :-)

Léia:
Take care ... and looking forward to the surprise! :-)

Sonia:
Yes, finally I believe I prefer snow to storms! :-)

Peter said...

hpy:
Je me souviens aussi de 1985! :-)

PattiKen:
Not every winter has snow here, but I understand that as a kid you must have appreciated! :-)

Arabesque:
Medium temperatures are perhaps the best? But, despite my Nordic origins, I believe I prefer a little bit too hot to too cold! :-)

Peter said...

Jilly:
Sincere thanks... I appreciate! :-)

B Alescio:
I would do my best to take a nice spring photo! :-)

James:
Yes, at least! :-)

Abe Lincoln said...

You have to be on the street poor over here to get any kind of free health care and that is what we want changed. I for one would think the government should take over the system and make it like our medicare.

I admire your country and others for the lead they have taken in health care.

Thanks a bunch for visiting my Brookville Daily Photo and for the comment. Sometimes I don't know what to post each day but it is usually something that I just took a picture of that caught my eye. This post is like that. I was experimenting with shutter speed and aperature to see if I could stop motion and it seemed to work in this photo you saw.

I always enjoy coming here.

Peter said...

Abe:
I understand your feelings about this, but oviously not shared by all your compatriots! :-)

Cergie said...

Magnifique scène de rue au dessus qui me rappelle tes photos de neige de l'année dernière. L'association Peter-Paris au mieux de sa forme !

Peter said...

Cergie:
Des fois des photos prises rapidement, sans prétention... !:-)

ParisBreakfasts said...

I know Paris can be the coldest place on the planet...
Still I'd rather be cold in Paris than anywhere else.

Peter said...

ParisBreakfasts:
Paris appreciates! :-)

Nathalie said...

Enough ? Oui sans doute je te comprends, mais pourtant j'adore tes photos - les traces de pattes d'oiseau dans la neige sont superbes, et la vue depuis ta fenêtre aussi. Allez courage, le printemps sera bientôt là.

Peter said...

Nthalie:
Merci pour tes encouragements! :-)

Trotter said...

Agreed!!

Peter said...

Trotter:
So, shared opinion! :-)
