Two Days of Snow in Madrid

Friday — The parks remained open as the first couple of inches of snow fell, and quite a number of people were out enjoying an unusual sight.

Saturday, at least a foot later…

The city was at a standstill following the most snow it has received in 40 or 50 years. It was beautiful in all sorts of ways, but emergency services were hampered and many trees in our neighborhood suffered damage that will take years to heal. But that did not stop the locals (and us) from coming out again in force, some sporting snow shoes or skis.
