Treacherous slush

Coming home from grocery shopping on Place Charost last Saturday. The little old lady made it safely to the other end of the street.
To answer some of your questions, snow in the north of France shouldn't be something unusual though it seems to have become so... Last time we had this much snow was in 2005. Let's say we enjoy it very much so long as it doesn't entail absolute chaos -which it often does!
Today incidentally we have gale force winds and temperatures are on the rise. Strange sudden weather changes...

Retour de courses Place Charost samedi dernier. Ca glisse terriblement, mais madame est arrivée à bon port.
Maintenant, ça ne glisse plus, la tempête de vent violent et de pluie a pris le relais...

We have come to know that scene well having had lived on the prairies where snow and slush was predominent especially towards spring. Winds can make it very uncomfortable.

Comment, comment? Mais nous avons eu un grand ciel bleu aujourd'hui sur les bords du Golfe, tout droit venu de l'ouest! Le changement vient de l'ouest, pas seulement la pluie!
La slush...le cauchemar des Québecois.

Looks like it was pretty miserable with all that slush.
