French Fridays - Preparation

For most of the Eastern US, it's cold. In my part of Western NY, we have -30 wind chill, and temperature highs in single digits. It's very cold and snowy.

They even talk about Niagara Falls freezing (ish, it's actually below the Falls that freeze, but it is cold). Currently, it's the forties (Fahrenheit) in France. Practically a heat wave compared to what I'm currently feeling.

One of the biggest aspects of traveling is the weather - preparing for the weather patterns normal in a given location is part of the research before heading over. At this point, anything warmer than 0 degrees Fahrenheit is a wonderful though.

Since I'll be in France from mid-May to mid-June, it'll be pleasant. Currently, it's one of things that helps with the cold - thinking warm thoughts about spring.
