Spain Is Currently Witnessing Their Biggest Snowfall In Decades And This Is How The Unusual Sight Looks
Dani Molinero, an ESL teacher and diversity educator, who captured the beautiful side of the blizzard, said that Filomena has really been at it in their region. “I am from the Basque Country, north of Spain, [and] the weather is usually warm and rainy [at this time of year],” Molinero told Bored Panda. “[It] rarely snows. But the storm has hit this place very hard. I am a teacher and school is canceled until next week, probably. This [looks like] the biggest snowfall ever in the history of my city.”
Reddit user alphasephirot, who took a picture of their cat Naoki (full name Ragnar de Naoki Boeing) in the snow, is from Madrid, living in the outskirts of the city in a place called Paracuellos. “The weather here is usually cold dry winters and very hot summers. It’s not unusual to have a cold winter with temperatures that range from 0 to 5 or 10 degrees on the ‘hottest’ days. It usually snows once every couple of years but it won’t even stay on the ground,” they told Bored Panda.
The 31-year-old has never seen anything like Filomena. “Of course there has been some snow in the past, and in 2009 we had a big snowfall as well, but nothing compared to this. It was normal these days to see people skiing on the streets, which was crazy. Traffic has been a nightmare and the government has been issuing warnings about the storm but everything has collapsed either way.”
“I work at the airport and though the news is that it is working as of now, the truth is that normal operation is a nightmare and the ice and snow patches are really hard to dissolve which complicates everything,” alphasephirot added. “The situation won’t go back to normal for at least one or two weeks from now which is crazy, considering that we are supposedly living in a ‘rich’ country.”
