Christmas snowstorn, Avignon, 2001

Taken in the courtyard of the Universite d’Avignon et Pays de Vaucluse, before they cut down the trees. It only snows in Avignon once every 8-9 years, and this was a big, wet,sticky kiss of winter. Merchants tried to sweep it away, most people stayed home since there were no snowplows or even snow shovels. Only photographers went scurrying about, and students picking up their exams.
