Travel Here Comes the Brrride! Newlyweds Pose for Photos in Front of Snowy Eiffel Tower
Should you delete your ex and their friends off social media?
Anyone who has dated anyone post 2004 most likely has had access to social media. So lets take a common scenario. You start dating a guy (or girl), you meet their friends and get along very well. You add them on Facebook and other social media. Then the chain of connections begin as all the other friends follow suit by adding you as a friend as well. You take many pictures together, you go out to restaurants and bars together. You like your partner’s friends.
This bride and groom definitely got cold feet during their wedding photo shoot.
As heavy snowfall covered Paris, newlyweds Yu Jian and Chen Yiyun posed for stunning images in front of the Eiffel Tower.
"It's beautiful when it snows," the couple told The Associated Press. "And we are so excited because this is our first time in Paris and in front of the Eiffel Tower."
They made the most of the bitterly cold weather, which is causing major travel disruptions in the city and across the northern half of the country.
This Is A True Pimple Popping Disaster
There are few things as terrifying as walking into the hospital with a rare disease or unknown growth. That was precisely what happened to one Chicagoan who disregarded advice to sanitize anything you put near your face. A 23-year-old construction worker paid a visit to his doctor after a mystery fungus appeared near his mouth. He had developed a rare festering fungal lesion after he snipped a pimple with a woodworking blade, according to The Journal of Emergency Medicine. Yes, you read that correctly: he popped a pimple with an unsanitized carpentry tool. © Photographed by Megan Madden.
Snowfall began Tuesday afternoon and continued through Wednesday. Nearly five inches of accumulation was expected in Paris, while neighboring suburbs could see as much as seven inches.
The Eiffel Tower was closed due to the weather on Wednesday. Some Parisians were seen using skis and snowboards to get around.
The cold snap caught French authorities off guard, according to The AP, and hundreds of people were forced to spend the night trapped in their vehicles because the roads were not cleared.
Commuters were left stranded in stations as buses were canceled and train service was reduced.
"We did everything we could to anticipate this situation," Johanna Primevert, a spokeswoman for the Paris police department, told RTL radio.
