Ah Marseille.
All the prettiness of the fresh-fallen snow yesterday...
now is squashed dog poop and cigarette butts in slush.

Stayed home from work again today. Woke up at 6 am and tried to check the road conditions as best as I could.
Road outside our apartment- completely clear.
Buses in Aix- not running until at least noon.
Highways: closed.
I guess I'll stay home.
Called my office and everyone else not living within walking distance stayed home as well.
Spent a productive day watching TV and eating oreos.
Didn't feel like braving Les Soldes again, though I do need to exchange some shoes I bought. Guess I'll go on Saturday morning.
Also did a load of laundry and a much needed vacuum/mop.
Bought a Galette des Rois (in frangipane- I don't like the other kind) at the nearest boulangerie for tonight.
Those things are darn expensive- 9€ for about 4 parts.
A little late on the whole "Epiphany" thing but oh well. That's life.
Oh yeah, also went back to the eye doctor on Tuesday night. My eyes are not progressing as well as hoped. Continue with eye drops and go back in a month.

That is precisely the reason I hate winter...well, amongst other things. The snow looks so beautiful when it's just fallen. The next day, it is gray slushy pileup along side the roads. Gross.

Enjoy your snow day!

It seems all of Europe is under snow at the moment. I hated having to drive to work in it, especially after it turned to ice.
