We are using this photo today not because it has snowed, but because it hasn't.
In fact, it last snowed here on January 25th 2013. That's two years without any snow at all - not a single flocon.
To my mind, this is a rareity. Although it is really difficult to discover what the longest snow free period is, we have been told that last year was the first time in 30 years it didn't snow in Paris, and when we bought our house we were told it snows every year even if it doesn't settle.
