A lot of Snow

Police prohibited access to Plaza Cervantes because it is very slippery

Garden of the faculty of Economics

Yesterday evening began to snow a lot and it snowed many hours. I even saw a plow yesterday evening cleaning streets from the snow. There is still nice layer of snow everywhere because night was cold. This is an emergency situation in Spain and there have been special actions taken: Classes of the university have been cancelled, access to motorways have been put free to make traffic go faster and special forces are working which have been used only once before. Winter tires are not used in Spain and traffic is in chaos right now.

  1. Maybe we should change places, finnish and spanish people. That way we could all get accustomed to these climatic changes.
