Have a thought... by Amaia on 17 December 2009 7:02pm
 
... for me tomorrow morning, cause I have to take the plane to finally go back home (Paris, that is). And the trouble is, if my plane might perfectly able to take off from Stavanger, Norway, I'm not so sure it'll be able to land on Orly, Paris... Due to the falling snow that's blocking pratically everything in the French capital (as usual) :(

At that point, I'm only praying my flight just gets delayed, even by 6 hours.

* John thaws the snow * :)
Best wishes Amaia.

Thanks for the thoughts, and the new word, John! :) I didn't know "thaw".

I shall impress people with it tomorrow. (or, at least, I shall try.)

LOL Amaia, I could teach you words that you won't find in any dictionary !
No ! Not that sort, just local dialect.

And btw, I thought Paris was a wonderful city after my visit a few months ago.

Amaia, I saw France 24's report on the snow in the Paris area. Prayers will be said for you to get home safely. It looked beautiful, as long as you don't have to drive in it. Or walk in it. Or do anything other than curl up in your favorite chair with hot chocolate, a book, and an animal companion and watch it fall.

I'll look at my dad instead of an animal companion (he has almost as many skills :), and i'll try to land safely, though i'm not the one deciding... but once in France, be sure, i'll do all that! :)

And please, Johnny, do teach me. Even that sort of words, I need to be prepared in front my future English-speaking students! (i already made a fool of myself once, i don't intend to do that twice)

Amaia, good luck getting home. May you be safe and snug at home in no time.

Here in the mid Atlanic we are also preparing for a big snowstorm, coming in about 31 hours. If we get the storm , which COULD still divert from us, it will be around for Santa's arrival. A white Christmas! They are scarce here these days.

Good luck Amaia. Look out the window as the plane approaches...the warmth in your smile will help thaw the snow from the runway!
