Snow in Madrid shuts down city.

Storm Filomena brings an unexpected start to 2021 in Spain.

I never, ever expected to see snow like this in Madrid. Trees are breaking under the weight of snow, all transport is suspended, and there are snow people everywhere! Snow began to fall on Thursday 7 January 2021 and Storm Filomena is exceeding all expectations. According to the news channel rtve, the last time it snowed this much was in 1971.

Here are a few photos I’ve taken over the past few days.
