Geneva in white. View some of my photos during in intense snowfall in Geneva Switzerland during the winter from December 2012 to late February 2013. Although this winter did not have the extremes of the previous one, just to remind here the icestorm on February 2012 that lasted almost 20 days with temperatures inside the city around -10 and -15 celsius degrees with strong north winds (bise) that froze everything around the lake (Lac de Geneve or Lac Leman), it was pretty cold and very snowy even inside the city.
The first intensive snowfall took place on the 13th of December. It did not last for long and snow melted just one or two days earlier. The most intense snowfall for this year did take place on the 15th of January. Most images but also the video posted just below is from this day at around 9:00am.
If i recall well, it also snowed the next day and temperatures stayed below zero for at least 10 days. To make the whole situation inside Geneva even more slippery, on 19 January there was one more snowfall that although it lasted for a few hours, it was at points intense and added a lot of snow to the already icy pavements from the 15th Jan snowfall.
February was also as cold as January with a lot of days below zero degrees and some light snowfalls that due to low temp whitened again Geneva. On some shadowy spots, ice resisted even after the 15th of March in Geneva that cold winter.
