December Snowfall

It's a little late reporting this because the snow has all melted, but two weeks ago Lyon woke up to a pre-Christmas snowfall that threw early morning commuters into a panic.

Those who couldn't drive tried the metro. Others chose the more sane option of walking. I even saw one man riding his bicycle, business suit and all.

More snow is predicted for the end of this week with temperatures well below 0° C. Only six days out from the solstice and already it's feeling a lot like winter.
