Barcelona, a photo a day

A very special day! Nevada historica en Barcelona


 Yes, today is a very special day indeed! Let us dwell in the urban history and myths… According to someone (in her thirties) I talked to today, this is the first day of it’s kind in 10 years.
Our neighbor,  the owner of the local garage, a man in his sixties, hasn’t seen anything like this since 1963.

Anyway, barceloneses will talk about this day for a long long time…

Que pasa, what is happening??? Let the pictures talk to us, shall we?

I shall post more than one picture today, today being a special day after all.

Here they come…

SNOW IN DOWNTOWN BARCELONA, AT SEA LEVEL! WEHEY!!!!!!!

It started snowing around 11.30 AM. By mid-afternoon, public transports had collapsed. 2 inches, 5 centimeters… 

09/03/2010 It’s official, we had yesterday the heaviest snowfall since 1962, according to the papers and MeteoCat.

  3. I'm sure the city has drawn a warm blanket up over its head and refused to go to work. Snow is an invitation to stay home and place.

  11. Wonderful images indeed !
    Glad that it was snow, as over here in Athens, it has been rather sandy/dusty through the whole day.
    Years since last I saw snow on me own. Enjoy it as much as possible. Please have a wonderful Tuesday as well.

  14. Snow! Lucky you!! (unless you need public transport) And many pictures to prove it.
    Love the palm trees under snow.

    And in Israel it is weird too, we are having a winter heatwave this week, with Jerusalem around 30 C.
    Everything is so mixed up this year.

  22. When I lived there in 2005, we had snow as well. But I wasn't directly in the city. I was living close to Mt. Tibidao.

    I was upset because I forgot to take a picture back then. I am glad you captured it now.
