Learning to Count


It snowed a lot again over Ile-de-France. 

 - Half a centimeter according to the police.

 - Twenty centimeters according to the people stuck in their cars.

:D

Great reference to the always contradicting ways of counting, the political way, and the way on the ground! Most often seen when it comes to manifs.

The snow is the least of it, it's the ice that is dangerous. Hospitals in Paris are receiving a lot of people who have fallen.

@ dauphin,

Whenever you go out in the snow and ice, take a pointed umbrella with you, or something similar like a cane with a point. Some of those people in the videos were too optimistic. You cannot walk on ice without a stick or cleats in your boots.

@ tiberge

Thanks, I'm out of danger here right now, but that's a good tip. I did buy those cleats that fit over and they look like they would work. Now for a solution to the cold. Tahiti, anyone?
