PS After this video, where people ride dog sleds around the Spanish capital, I remembered a session where C 's was suddenly asked: "Laura, do you like skiing? Perhaps you will need them soon" (something like that).
I know that Laura loves dogs and she has several of them. So, dear Laura, maybe we should pick up a couple more dogs for the sledding? I recommend taking Siberian huskies.:wow:🐶

STORM FILOMENA has sparked never-before-seen scenes of snow across Spain's capital city of Madrid, leaving half of the country in red alert and even recording temperatures as low as -36C - the coldest on record.​



Earlier this week, a record-breaking temperature of -35.8C was registered on Thursday in the northwestern province of Leon - the coldest temperature the country has ever recorded.

BBC Breakfast host Charlie Stayt said: "You are unlikely to have ever seen a picture of Madrid like this. It is the first snowfall in 10 years.

BBC Weather meteorologist Helen Willets added: "This is a one in 30-year event.

Aftermath of the storm "Filomena" in Madrid (Spain), January 2021. Madrid in the snow:

So a few days ago Spain recorded its lowest temperature ever at -34C. Today Madrid sees its heaviest snowfall in 50 years.

From France 24:

Madrid sees heaviest snowfall in 50 years as storms snarl travel in Spain​


Four people died in Spain as Storm Filomena caused travel chaos across the country, blanketing Madrid in the heaviest snowfall in decades and forcing authorities to mobilise troops to rescue trapped motorists.

Rescue services reached 1,500 people trapped in cars, while skiers glided down Gran Via, normally one of the busiest streets in the capital. Other Madrid residents used the freak blizzard to snowboard down the road or pelt each other with snowballs.

A man and woman who were traveling in a car drowned after a river burst its banks near Malaga, southern Spain, and two homeless people froze to death, one in Madrid and the other in the eastern city of Calatayud, authorities said.

Responding to the events, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia tweeted: "The royal family would like to express their sorrow for victims of the storm ... and ask for extreme caution against the risks of accumulation of ice and snow."

Interior minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska urged Spaniards to avoid all but essential travel. "We are facing the most intense storm in the last 50 years," he said.

More than 650 roads were blocked by snow, said Grande-Marlaska, leaving some drivers stuck in their cars from Friday night until Saturday.


Patricia Manzanares, trapped in her car on the M-40 motorway in Madrid since 7 p.m. on Friday, told RTVE television: "I have been stuck here without water or any other help".

Aena, which controls the country's airports, said Madrid's Barajas airport, which was closed on Friday night, would remain shut for the rest of Saturday. It said at least 50 flights to Madrid, Malaga, Tenerife and Ceuta, a Spanish territory in North Africa, were canceled.

The State Meteorological Agency said it was the heaviest snowfall in Madrid since 1971, while José Miguel Viñas, a meteorologist from Spanish National Radio, said that between 25 cm and 50 cm (10-20 inches) had fallen in the capital, which he said made it the largest snowfall since 1963.

Atletico Madrid's game against Athletic Bilbao, scheduled to kick off at 1515 GMT on Saturday, was postponed, La Liga said in a statement.

You know, if we really are watching the onset of an ice age, it's kind of bizarre seeing it all happen in slow motion, so to say, while hardly anyone is paying attention.
I was having the same thought... To see the beginning of the Ice Age. What is more amazing is when I say to my friends "we are entering now the Ice Age" they continue as nothing, it is like my words fall on the floor like flakes and disappear. They even say: oh, it is normal, we are in winter station.

Well.

Minus 37 ( -37) in some part of Spain is really a very important sign, at least for me...

There is also reports that China is confronting one of the stronger winters since 20 years ago, lots of snow as well.
Beijing is experiencing a strong cold wave that started early Wednesday, with the lowest temperature forecast to reach minus 19 degrees Celsius.
The lowest temperature recorded in the city since 2000 was minus 17 degrees Celsius, according to the Beijing meteorological station.
The first cold wave in 2021 features a "dramatic temperature drop," "significant wind-chill effect" and "prolonged period of low temperature," said Lei Lei, chief forecaster of the station.

Does Twitter start to ban messages about snowy weather? Here is what I get: "The following media includes potentially sensitive content."!

Everything works for me - although I wonder if this is not the time to make Screenshots posts on the twitter.

It's possible that the twitter uses an algorithm that is just adapted to and subordinate to a user group, which censors weather changes.
