France covered in snow


From the website of the European Space Agency:

“This satellite image, acquired by Envisat’s Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) instrument on 7 January 2009, shows most of central and northern France covered by a white layer of snow, while regions closer to the Atlantic coast remain largely snow free. Towards the upper right Paris can just be seen under the cloud layer at the top edge of the image.
