I had planned to take an English speaking tour on Wednesday. It started at 11:00am and I woke up at 10:07! I jumped out of bed, threw on some clothes and hurried out to the Metro. I made it to the right station in Montmartre about 5 minutes late but caught the group (hard to miss with the bright pink vest their guides wear) and was able to join them.
It was grey and gloomy but warm (maybe 30-35)...a really good temp for walking when you're bundled up a bit.
