Snow in Paris has caused several traffic headaches around the country, but it also made for beautiful photos.
Due to snow on Sunday, forty percent of flights were cancelledto and from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports in Paris. Only a little more than 50 percent of Air France's short-and medium-haul flights took off on Monday.
The cancellations caused hundreds of people to be stranded and more snow was expected for Monday afternoon.
Paris wasn't the only European country that received snow which caused flight disruptions. Snow caused Heathrow to cancel 262 flight on Sunday and 130 on Monday, according to the Huffington Post. Frankfurt's airport cancelled 180 flights on Monday and Munich canceled 200. Barcelona had 16 flight cancellations.
Snow and ice also caused road travel issues across Europe. In the German state of Hesse, thwere was a 35-mile long traffic jam on a busy highway. Even Moscow, which is used to heavy amounts of snow, had severe traffic issues and the snow covered the roads.
France's SNCF rail service was even disrupted as there were delays up to 40 minutes on several routes. Rescue crews had to save about 100 people from a train which got stuck on an open-air track over the Seine river in Paris, Reuters reports.
Southwestern France is also dealing with major power outages as 25,000 homes lost electricity.
Even though it caused quite a headache, a snow-laced Paris created a perfect scenery for beautiful photos.
