Paris Chicago Seattle

January 6th, 2009 by misty

We’re finally feeling the cold here, I mean, it’s not -30C like in Poland, but it’s -7. It’s -1 in Chicago, 10 degrees in Seattle. How I miss the days of 10 degrees – it’s been weeks! I thought Paris and Seattle had the same weather, I was very wrong. Tomorrow, we can look forward to highs in the -1s. So, I have been living below freezing for a month and yes, it’s unusual to see the Eiffel Tower covered in snow, but I’m ready for the tropical climate of good old Seattle. I want to wear only one pair of gloves! I want to not have to watch out for both black ice and doggie gifts. Maybe I’m just sad because our wine shop took the extended vacation (a second august) and our neighborhood is still just struggling back to life after la crise de foie of Christmas.

And yet, I can’t help wondering when is the soonest I can return to Paris?
